Ultrasound is extremely useful in guided injections into tendons, bursa and joints. Accuracy is heightened when the tip of the needle is placed into tissue under ultrasound guidance. Improved accuracy with ultrasound ultimately improves the effectiveness of injection therapy. Studies show superior results in treatment with ultrasound guided injections. Small and large joints of the body can be identified and injected same day in our rooms. Tendon treatments can be assessed and monitored under direct ultrasound vision.
Treatments performed under ultrasound into tendons and joints:
- Platelet Rich Plasma
- Cortisone injections
- Hydrodilatation of joints
