Ultrasound guided injections are often used to help reduce pain so that a patient can engage with their physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation. Many patients have difficulty performing the exercise program they have been asked to carry out due to high levels of pain and, therefore, an injection is very much part of a treatment package.
The ultrasound guided injection will be delivered by one of our highly trained clinicians, who will assess you, scan you and perform an ultrasound guided injection if agreed that this is the best and most appropriate treatment. Most injection procedures only require a single injection, however, there are situations where a patient may require more than one injection, e.g., a frozen shoulder may require two to three injections each around six to eight weeks apart. Another example is PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections, which are typically given as a program of three treatments, each treatment being one week apart.
We have created a patient information page and also an online medical screening and consent form, with associated patient information leaflets, which outline potential risks and side effects associated with the specific injection that you are booking in for.
Injections are generally regarded as very safe. However, please see the link to our page outlining potential risks and side effects associated with these procedures.
The clinician performing your injection will advise you of any specific advice and management of your condition following the injection. Typically, they may advise you of relative rest for a specific period after the injection, usually only a maximum of a couple of days. However, this will be discussed in more detail at your appointment.
Yes. Ultrasound guided injections are used to reduce pain. This is most often to allow patients to increase their ability to exercise and self manage their condition e.g. frozen shoulder or arthritic knee. Some injections are very effective as a stand-alone treatment e.g. trigger finger. Hyaluronic acid and PRP are typically used as adjuncts to an exercise and rehabilitation program.
Ultrasound guidance allows the injection to be targeted within the tissues therefore minimising any discomfort both during and after the procedure.
An ultrasound guided injection consultation and treatment typically lasts around 20-30mins. The amount of time spent assessing and scanning is dependent upon the condition.
Our clinicians do not perform ultrasound of any areas around the lumbar spine or neck.
