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, and stemcell 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.
Treatment plans range from less invasive procedures such as Platelet Rich Plasma Injections to more complex procedures such as Kyphoplasty, MILD procedure, Percutaneous Disc Decompression, Spinal Cord Stimulators, and Programmable Medication Pump Implants.
