“Athletes often specialize in one sport and use another for cross training. Runners might cycle, cyclists might run, swimmers might lift weights. But triathletes are willing to take on three difficult sports at the same time. In essence they triple their risk of injury by competing heavily in areas that other athletes use for active rest and physical therapy.” Why Strength Training For Triathletes Is So Important

Lev Kalika: Muscle relaxation is a neurologically active process, and, in the beginning, special attention must be paid to that. The relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles is intimately connected to proper breathing and could lead to oxygen metabolism improvement. This is important for minimizing muscle fatigue and can lead to better performance. more on

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
