Using ultrasound guidance, a USG joint injection procedure
If you are living with joint pain, there’s hope! USG Joint Injections offered by QC Medical Care, a NCS/EMG and pain management practice, are a safe and effective way to help reduce pain and inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis.
Using ultrasound guidance, a USG joint injection procedure is a simple and minimally invasive procedure that allows precise delivery of medication to the affected joint. This can help reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and improve functioning. Your physician at QC Medical Care will inject a combination of local anesthetics and corticosteroids which can help to decrease pain and improve mobility.
The procedure itself is simple and generally pain-free. After a numbing medication is injected into the skin around the affected joint, a direct injection of the steroid-anesthetic mixture is delivered into the joint area using ultrasound guidance to direct the needle as close to the affected area as possible. This sound-wave technology allows your doctor to visualise the target area and monitor the exact location of the injection, ensuring accuracy and precision.
The benefits of USG joint injections are great. You can enjoy immediate relief from the anesthetic and much quicker results than those of other injection treatments. Depending on some factors such as the severity of your pain and the number of joints involved, multiple treatments may be performed over time.
Avoid the risk of surgery and make an appointment with QC Medical Care today to discuss your treatment options and to receive a USG joint injection. Your physician can help you get back to living a full and active life without pain.
