ULTRASOUND GUIDED corticosteroid INJECTIONS Near Solihull

A corticosteroid injection also called cortisone injection offers pain relief from inflammatory signs, such as joint pain or soft tissue pain, swelling, and joint stiffness. These may, in turn, help you to return to normal activities/hobbies OR to commence physiotherapy.  

Ultrasound-guided cortisone injections allow the clinician to visualise the needle and needle tip in real-time as it enters the body and navigates the needle to the treatment area accurately. This assures that the medication is accurately injected at the source of the symptoms site. 

Beforehand, the procedure will be explained to you, Side effects, risks and benefits will be discussed. You will be given an opportunity to discuss any other questions or concerns you may have. If there are any changes in your health or circumstances you must inform the clinician, before the injection.

What is an ultrasound guided hyaluronic acid (HA) injection?

HA injection is also known as Gel injection or Lubricant injection. This viscosupplementation injection is a natural component of synovial fluid. This tends to increase joint fluid viscosity and restores the joint lubrication. Hence, acts as a shock absorber to control the joint /tendon symptoms. Limits the further damage to the joint and delays or avoids the need for surgery. Also, helps to enjoy your daily activities or your preferred hobbies. To find out more please visit our GUIDED ULTRASOUND HYALURONIC ACID INJECTIONS page from the ‘Types of Guided injection’ menu on the top.

These injections are very popular, especially for knee joint pain. Any number of injections can be taken in a given period, due to minimal or no side effects from these injections. Usually, a course of 3 Injections is preferred, though some may do well just with an injection per year 9 we have patients managing just with 1/year.

What is an ultrasound guided PRP injection?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are rich in growth factors (helps in repairing the cell and its growth) and prepared from the patient’s own blood. Separated growth factors from the patient’s blood is injected back into the affected area of the same patient. PRP’s ability to heal and even regenerate injured or aging tendons, ligaments and joints, provides some patients with an alternative to surgery. PRP therapy may reduce the required healing time for the injuries (especially for sports injuries and early Arthritis); otherwise, athletes/sports professionals may require longer periods of rest from their sports-related activities.

Always, consider having the PRP injections under ultrasound guidance for accuracy.
