The City 2 Surf on again this Sunday (August 12, 2018) and we have a group of Synergy radiology employees entering the gruelling 14km course to raise money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service!
But we are not the only ones who have emerged from their winter hibernation who will take part in this popular fun run this weekend. A whopping 85,000 people are predicted to attend!
Running has many health benefits and because of this is one of the most popular fitness activities worldwide. However, getting fit for Summer might lead to an unwanted lower limb injury if pain is ignored, which can create more harm than good to our much wanted beach bods.
The most common injuries which occur from running include: Blisters, Plantar Fasciitis, Runner’s knee (IlioTibial Band Friction Syndrome) and Shin Splints- all of which require the correct diagnosis to ensure that rehabilitation is done correctly and that time off the concrete is limited.
Medical Imaging is an extremely useful tool in the diagnosis of lower limb injuries.
X-rays should be first in line for diagnosing athletic injuries. It is inexpensive, safe, and readily available.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses magnetic waves to visualise structures of the
Ultrasonography uses sound waves to study soft tissue structures of the body. Because it is radiation free it is the preferred imaging modality by many.
