Therapeutic ultrasound science is still lame 

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on are updated regularly over the years (see updates page).

Therapeutic ultrasound science is still lame: one of the worst cases of “garbage in, garbage out” in all of musculoskeletal medicine.

After quite a lot of procrastinating, my ultrasound article now finally features a totally overhauled evidence review … which doesn’t even budge the bottom line. I purged some old citations and added six new reviews from the last decade … which are basically all still about scamnty, crappy evidence, showing no effect at all or only trivial benefits. I feel like I could sum up the entire topic of ultrasound with one short word: MEH. 🙁
