Ultrasound Guided Injection
Studies show that ultrasound guided injections are much more accurate than “blind” injections. The doctor has the ability to see exactly where the injection went and where they are targeting the area. Ultrasound-guided injections increase the effectiveness of treatment and allow the use of a thinner, less painful needle. These procedures do not require anesthesia and there is no radiation in the ultrasound device.
Injection applications are widely used in the treatment of musculoskeletal complaints.
Injection applications are performed for the purpose of eliminating acute symptoms, accelerating recovery and diagnostic purposes.
The most common indication is to relieve the patient’s pain and improve range of motion. Generally used injection indications are intra-articular applications, tendon injections, trigger point injections and intralesional injections.
