Ultrasound guided injections
Ultrasound guided injections in Wandsworth
What can be injected and why ultrasound guided?
Firstly, ultrasound guidance improves accuracy and therefore effectiveness and improved outcomes after the injection.
Steroid, PRP and hyaluronic acid (HA) can be injected. Steroid injections are useful for any acutely irritable swollen joints, tendons and bursa such as a swollen knee joint or inflamed shoulder bursa.
HA is also good for any joint pain such as hip or knee arthritis. It provides joint support and lubrication for 6-12 months.
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma, some blood is taken from the arm and spun in a machine to produce the PRP, this can be injected in arthritic joints such as the knee, into painful tendons such as tennis elbow and plantar fascia and also in rotator cuff tears.
PRP and HA combination preparations are available are more effective than either PRP or HA alone for arthritic joints.
