Visualizing motor control using rehabilitative ultrasound

...from the diaphragm to the pelvic floor, and everything in between!

During his presentation at the international symposium on Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI), which was held in Madrid June 2016, Paul Hodges discussed the utility of ultrasound in evaluating the function of muscles with a role in lumbopelvic control. Understanding physiology and biomechanics is necessary to study lumbopelvic dysfunctions. Trunk control depends on a complex integrated system model which includes pelvic floor function, breathing pattern and lumbopelvic control. Ultrasound is a valuable tool to understand muscle activation patterns and propose an individualized treatment.
