Ultrasound-guided Injections

Back to Sports Medicine

Featured Image

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.
