Aside from its prompt use in musculoskeletal injuries (sports lesions, degenerative/inflammatory joint disorders, and peripheral nerve pathologies), ultrasonographic imaging can be used quite conveniently in various types of rehabilitation conditions as well. If used in a rehabilitation setting, ultrasound can significantly contribute to the diagnostic/therapeutic algorithm of rehabilitation patients. Accordingly, in this article, the authors focus on the diagnostic/interventional utility of ultrasound particularly for shoulder problems, overuse injuries of wheelchair users, heterotopic ossification, amputee follow-up, peripheral nerve and botulinum toxin injections, and diaphragm imaging/electromyography.
