Joint Care offers injection therapies that can be specifically targeted at the area of concern using ultrasound guidance.
Cortisone injections have an anti-inflammatory effect and can be used to treat persistently inflamed joints or soft tissues. When undertaken with ultrasound guidance, studies have shown that this can give a better response to the initial injection and is less painful.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the fluid within your joints. Hyaluronic acid injections are a safe way to help lubricate the painful joint and relieve pain after only a few days. They are mainly used for arthritis of the joints, particularly when patients want to avoid or delay surgical treatment. Hyaluronic acid is administered as a course of three injections, each separated by one to three weeks. The benefits can last up to six months; if effective, patients can have repeated courses.
