FAQ's

What are Ultrasounded - Guided Joint Injections?

Ultrasound-guided joint injections are injections where the needle is guided to the injection site by ultrasound imaging. Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the body.

The doctor views this image in real time. They see exactly which part of the joint the needle is in. This helps them guide the needle tip placement to the target tissues.

What are benefits of Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injections?

Ultrasound-guided joint injections are more accurate than injections using the doctor’s judgment alone. This makes the pain relief they provide super targeted, increasing its effectiveness and longevity.

This treatment not only reduces pain but can help improve your movement and flexibility. With less stiffness, inflammation and pain you can return to the activities you love.

What are Cortesteroid Injections?

Corticosteroid injections, also known as local steroid injections, are used for pain relief and can treat conditions such as joint pain, arthritis, and sciatica.

It is important to note that corticosteroid injections are completely different from anabolic steroid injections, which are substances some people illegally use to build muscle.

How Corticosteroid Injections work?
Corticosteroid injections deliver an anti-inflammatory substance into a person’s joint, muscles, or soft tissue. The substance injected is called hydrocortisone.

Hydrocortisone is a synthetic steroid, an artificial version of cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands that reduces inflammation.
