New Technology for Chronic Pain Suffers
Administering ultrasound guided joint, tendon, muscle and cartiladge injections is a non-invasive, non-ionizing interventional pain management modality thats gaining popularity. The option provides direct visualization of soft tissues while offering real-time needle advancements without the risks of radiation. Doctors can diagnose soft tissue areas impacted by pain as they are administering steroid, platelet rich plasma injections. This diagnostic ability allows the provider to target the pain with greater precision. Ultrasound guided joint, tendon, muscle and cartilage injections offer an easier and more effective way to free patients from pain.
