I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Very nice clinic and in my opinion affordable. I went there because I have office job and suffer from neck/back pain occasionally. Jamie Franchini was extra attentive, reassuring and informative all the way along my first app (since my partner mentioned that I feel a bit nervious about the procedure) and has a very friendly and welcoming personality. He explained everything and made me at ease. Created plan for my particular needs and even sent me additional info with recommended excercises to do for my issues. Had just few visits but deffinately will keep going for the maintenance and further support of overall health. Highly recommending :)

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging (the same as used in pregnancy scans), is a great way to assess the condition of muscles, tendons and joints. 

Diagnostic Ultrasound in Cheltenham

Ultrasound imaging (the same as used in pregnancy scans), is a brilliant way to assess the condition of muscles, tendons and joints. The advantage of ultrasound is that it is very safe (no radiation) quick and accurate at diagnosing many injuries. Patients will be able to see their injuries in real time during the assessments.

Please note that we only use diagnostic ultrasound for musculoskeletal injuries. We do not assess hernias or lumps and bumps. Due to the depth of the spine ultrasound is not used to look at spinal injuries.

Areas of the body ultrasound is useful for diagnosing:

  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Elbow Injuries
  • Wrist & Hand Pain
  • Hip Problems
  • Knee Pain
  • Ankle & Foot Injuries
  • Ligament Tears
  • Tendonitis or Inflammation of a Tendon
  • Muscle Tears

What we offer

At Skelian we offer private ultrasound scans to assess our patients for injury. This is a fantastic service if you are looking for a fast and accurate diagnosis for what could be causing your joint pain. Our scans are performed by an experienced specialist physiotherapist Jonathan Wride.

During the ultrasound scan, you will also experience some form of physical exam to add to your findings from the scan to help make sure your diagnosis is as accurate as possible

The Benefits of Ultrasound

  • Fast referral
  • Be seen quickly
  • Accurate diagnosis
  • See your injury or problem is real time during the scan
  • Safe (no harmful radiation)
  • Not painful
  • Diagnosis by a musculoskeletal specialist
  • Experienced practitioner
  • Receive the written report quickly
  • In some cases, you can move the area of the body whilst being scanned to assess the whole area for what is causing the pain or problem
  • Affordable price
  • Follow up and after care services available

What to expect

You will be greeted by our specialist physio in the waiting area and will be welcomed into the treatment room. From there Jonathan our specialist physio will ask you some questions about your health and your condition. After speaking to you about your problem he will then perform a focused physical exam , followed by the diagnostic ultrasound scan. 

During the scan Jonathan will be able to point out to you where the problem is, so you can see the issue in real time as you are being scanned.

Included in diagnostic ultrasound scan: 

  • Explanation of your diagnosis/condition
  • Explanation of what are the treatment options
  • Explanation of what are the next steps following your diagnosis
