Ultrasound Guided Injections

Ultrasound Guided Injections

The benefit of using the ultrasound machine to guide injections is that it improves the accuracy of the injection – she can see the injection going into the right spot in real-time. Ultrasound guided injections are also found to be less painful than non-guided injections.



Platelet rich plasma (PRP)

We are proud to be the first clinic on Guernsey to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This cutting-edge treatment enhances healing through the power of your own cells. PRP is a concentration of platelets taken from your own blood, which release high concentrations of growth factors and bioactive proteins that naturally initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. It is particularly useful for osteoarthritic joints and chronic tendinopathies where conservative rehabilitation has failed.

Other injections that can be offered include:
  • Corticosteriods for joint or acute tendon inflammation. This acts as a very powerful anti-inflammatory. It is also very useful in bursitis of the shoulder, elbow, hip or knee.

  • Hyaluronic acid for osteoarthritis – this is particularly useful for early osteoarthritis in patients keen to avoid surgery. It acts as a synthetic synovial fluid (which helps to lubricate the joint) reducing pain and improving movement.

Joint Care offers both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections.

Joint Care has a dedicated physical therapy team.

PRP is an incredibly safe and effective treatment using the patient's blood to accelerate healing.

Joint Care offers injection therapies that can be specifically targeted at the area of concern using ultrasound guidance.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a safe and non-invasive treatment for injured soft tissue.
