Depending on the source of the pain, the utmost accuracy may be required. The structure of the pain source may sometimes be only a couple millimeters and it is best to not interfere with the surrounding structures. In this case, we offer ultrasound guided joint injections, which provide for a more precise needle placement. The ultrasound machine displays the area of pain in real time imaging. With this, we can then ensure we guide the needle with pin-point accuracy.
We can provide these injections for a variety of conditions, from knee inflammation to shoulder tendinitis. After receiving these injections, most patients will feel relief for weeks or, in some cases, months. Stretching and proper exercise remain an integral part of the healing process after receiving such treatment and also helps with future prevention.
