If you’re experiencing any aches or pain in your joints, here’s a bit about how Ultrasound Guided Injections can help with relieving your symptoms.

What are Ultrasound Guided Injections?

There are a wide range of injections to help with any joint pain you may be experiencing. Following a quick yet in-depth assessment we are able to offer anti- inflammatory steroids such as Cortisone, these injections work quickly to reduce the inflammation causing pain, Synvisc injections designed to supplement the fluid in knees to cushion and lubricate the joint or Ostenil joint injections which contain a substance called sodium hyaluronate that works to reduce pain and stiffness in the joints.

Unlike a standard injection by using an ultrasound to guide the injection the tip of the needle can be accurately positioned to provide pain relief in the exact location where it is required. This can result in faster and more effective pain relief for patients and a better recovery than an injection that is given "blind".

What are Ultrasound Guided Injections useful for?

Injuries can be picked up from everyday activities, walking, playing sports, even working at a desk. All sorts of joint pains and inflammation can be reduced with Ultrasound Guided Injections; frozen shoulders, tennis/golfers elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, cartilage tears, sprains, gout, arthritis, tendonitis, osteoarthritis and most causes of musculoskeletal joint discomfort.

Damaged joints will swell, this inflammation is what causes the burning pain. Ultrasound Guided Injections take care of the inflammation, by cushioning, lubricating or reducing stiffness in the joint.

It is important to take this first step to rehabilitation to restore pain- free movement in your joint. These injections are not the complete cure for your joint problem, however; once the pain element is removed or reduced many patients are able to start building up strength again to get back to doing the things they love. Ultrasound Guided Injections offer relief from the inflammation that is causing you pain, once this is taken care of it allows you to then treat the underlying problem. For example, many of our patients have Ultrasound Guided Injections for respite while they wait for operations or before embarking on a strengthening program for the surrounding muscle areas which will then take off some of the pressure on the joint.

How long do Ultrasound Guided Injections take?

Treatment takes minutes and there’s no need for a general anaesthetic so you don’t have to go into hospital. Treatments are carried out in our clinics under the expert care of a Consultant Radiologist. Your consultant will recommend the best course of treatment for you and make sure you know what to expect.

After your Ultrasound Guided Injections we recommend you do not drive home from your procedure, Doctors recommend you rest for the following 24-48 hours. In the days following your Ultrasound Guided Injections, you will notice a gradual improvement as the inflammation starts to subside and the pain is reduced or the joint becomes more lubricated. Ultrasound Guided Injections can continue to give you respite for weeks, even months.
