Ultrasound-guided Injections

Thanks to ultrasound imaging that allows our sports medicine doctors to see inside the athlete’s body, they can pinpoint the pain spot in a joint or tendon sheath.

Using a small probe pressed against the skin, doctors perform injections by watching the needle on a video monitor. Ultrasound is most often used for steroid injections. The technique can also be used for platelet-rich plasma, a treatment using platelets from a patient’s blood to repair damaged tendons, muscle, ligaments and joints.

Conditions treated with ultrasound-guided injections include arthritis (in kids and adults), sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, tendinopathy and bursitis.
