Precision Guided Joint Injections
Ultrasound Guided Injections
Ultrasound can be used to guide injections into the affected area, minimizing pain and maximizing the effect of the injection. It has become a useful addition to many procedures performed in pain management and rehabilitation medicine. With ultrasound, needles can be guided accurately to the target site to increase the success of injection procedures. Ultrasound is used in knee joint injections, hip, shoulder and foot, carpal tunnel injections, and many other injections to relieve pain from medical conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, etc.
Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous x-ray image on the monitor. A fluoroscopic guided injection involves injecting medicine directly into the joint. It is primarily used for therapeutic reasons combining a corticosteroid and numbing injections. These injections can help diagnose the source of the pain, as well as alleviate any discomfort.
