What is an Ultrasound-guided Joint Injection?
Ultrasound-guided joint injections describe many of the joint injection treatments we provide at Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic. Using ultrasound technology, we are able to monitor the placement of the needle throughout the treatment process. This helps us find the optimal placement for your joint injection, which will lead to results that last longer and produce greater relief. Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic offers a range of ultrasound-guided joint injection treatments to help patients find relief from a variety of pain conditions.
What is an Ultrasound-guided Joint Injection Used to Treat?
Ultrasound-guided joint injections include all joint injection treatments performed at Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic. These treatments can be used to treat pain in any joint, whether it develops from injury, arthritis or other chronic pain conditions. Our joint injections are composed of a blend of local anesthetic and steroid medication, which soothes inflammation in the area while simultaneously providing long-lasting pain relief.
What Can I Expect from an Ultrasound-guided Joint Injection?
During the ultrasound-guided joint injection treatment, a small needle is inserted into the appropriate joint while being monitored with ultrasound technology. We will ensure that you are adequately numbed for this process. Once the needle is in place, the local anesthetic and steroid medication is injected into the joint. The local anesthetic will provide immediate pain relief, although it will only last for a few hours. Pain may return briefly, but the steroid medication should take effect within a few days, producing the full results of treatment. You will need someone to drive you home after your procedure. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best approach for your ultrasound-guided joint injection treatment and tell you what you can expect from your treatment.
