Knee Ultrasound Assessment

Knee Ultrasound
At ActiJoint we use ultrasound imaging to perform an in-depth assessment of your joint. Each of our providers has received advanced ultrasound diagnostic training in order to accurately and thoroughly assess the condition of your joint(s). Below are some commonly asked questions regarding this assessment.

Who needs a knee ultrasound assessment?

• Active individuals
• (Competitive) athletes
• Individuals with aging knees/joints
• Individuals that work labor-intensive jobs
• Individuals that are overweight/obese
• Individuals with a family history of joint problems
• Individuals with past joint injuries
• Individuals experiencing pain/stiffness in their knee/joints
If you meet any of these criteria, we recommend that you schedule a knee ultrasound assessment. Once we assess the current condition of your joints, we can provide recommendations and treatments that will keep your joints healthy and your lifestyle active long-term.

I don’t have pain, should I still be assessed?

Yes! When it comes to your joints, early identification of problems/injuries can make a great difference in your long-term joint health. Many non-surgical treatments for joints are more effective when the condition is identified and treated early. Using ultrasound technology, our providers can detect problems/injuries early, even before symptoms like pain and stiffness appear.

This proactive approach can be extremely important, as many patients with joint injuries or arthritis are asymptomatic, the joint undergoing “silent destruction” for years. An early diagnosis can help keep your joints healthy by taking preventative measures and treatments.

ActiJoint specializes in keeping joints functional and pain-free long-term. So whether you are seeking treatment early for prevention or late for restoration, we can help.

Is this covered by insurance?

Yes, knee ultrasound assessments are covered by Medicare and most major insurance policies. If you have more questions about insurance coverage, click here

I already have a diagnosis, why should I get an Ultrasound Assessment?

Though you may have already received a diagnosis, there is more information that can be found in a knee ultrasound assessment. For example, a trained and experienced eye can detect more than just the presence of osteoarthritis, but the probable cause, the severity, and the future “at-risk” structures in your joint. This in-depth evaluation allows our providers to recommend a treatment plan tailored specifically to you.
