Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging

Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging 201

Using Ultrasound for Rehabilitation in a Clinical Setting


  • Identify contemporary concepts of spinal anatomy, physiology, neurophysiology
  • Name and outline a new functional classification of muscle and compare with prior classification systems
  • Describe the contemporary concepts of spinal segmental stabilization and the key role of the multifidus and transversus abdominis muscles in spinal stabilization
  • Explain modern concepts of the etiology of musculoskeletal pain and classify spinal pain syndromes using Waddell’s diagnostic triage
  • Recognize the current model of segmental movement dysfunction and associate movement dysfunction sequelae with spinal instability and pain generation
  • Compare prior muscle imbalance and dysfunction concepts with modern concepts
  • Associate modern movement dysfunction concepts to manual diagnostic procedures, clinical findings and diagnosis of spinal segmental instability
  • Apply the use of RUSI to movement dysfunction, spinal pain and rehabilitation
  • Summarize the basic science of ultrasound physics and image production
  • Outline techniques on optimizing ultrasound image creation to identify and contrast various tissues types within an ultrasound image Identify the multifidus and transversus abdominis in various ultrasound images
  • Outline a standardized protocol for utilizing RUSI in a clinical setting to objectively measure and qualitatively assess the multifidus and transversus abdominis in various views and patient maneuvers
