Ultrasound-Guided Injections

Ultrasound-guided injections are a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for issues relating to the body’s joints. Instead of relying on experience or touch to inject medicine into your joints, ultrasound-guided injections use imaging technology to identify and locate the precise area in your affected joint that requires attention.

Ultrasound-guided injections are used to treat:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Stress fractures
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • ACL, PCL, and Meniscal Tears
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Muscle strains
  • And more

With the added visualization from an ultrasound, doctors can ensure patients receive the full benefit of the injection. For some injections, accuracy is needed in order to ensure the injection is effective. If you inject something like hyaluronic acid into the wrong area of the joint, the injection won’t be able to reduce pain or swelling. Through innovative technology like ultrasound-guided injections, doctors can provide much more effective treatment.
