Types of Injections
Steroid injections are performed under ultrasound guidance with the aim of precisely depositing anti-inflammatory steroid and local anaesthetic to give pain relief and reducing inflammation.
Hyaluronic Acid Injection
Hyaluronic Acid injections are becoming increasingly popular for individuals with joint pain. The benefit of Hyaluronic Acid injection is that it has less harmful effects than cortisone to joint surfaces and tendons, and symptom relief can last a lot longer.
Hydrodistension (high volume) injection
Hydrodistension or High Volume injections are performed under ultrasound guidance with the aim of precisely depositing anti-inflammatory steroid, local anaesthetic and saline to give pain relief whilst also deliberately stretching the lining of the joint
Ultrasound-Guided Dry Needling
An aspiration is a procedure where we remove a small amount of fluid from an area like a joint using a needle under ultrasound guidance.
