Experience Advanced Pain Treatment at Freedom Care Clinics with Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injections

How Does It Work?

Ultrasound-guided injections have revolutionized pain management, offering targeted relief for inflammation, swelling, and musculoskeletal conditions affecting joints, tendons, tendon sheaths, or bursae. By utilizing high-frequency sound waves, real-time and dynamic images of the affected area are produced, allowing for precise and accurate pain relief injections, minimizing discomfort during the procedure. 

This innovative musculoskeletal injection method enables our clinician to visualize surrounding structures before, during, and after the treatment, providing immediate feedback to both the patient and the clinician.

Our Leeds based joint Injection clinic offers; anti-inflammatory steroid injections, joint lubrication Ostenil Plus injections, and hydrodistension injections to alleviate frozen shoulder pain. 

Advantages Of Ultrasound-Guided Assessment

An advanced MSK clinician will perform an in-depth case history, a thorough physical assessment, and a dynamic ultrasound scan. This comprehensive assessment enables your clinician to provide an accurate diagnosis related to your specific issue more accurately than ultrasound assessment alone.

 Why Ultrasound-Guided Injections?
  • Real-time feedback of needle location in relation to joints, tendons, muscles, blood vessels and nerves for better accuracy
  • Steroid Cortisone injections for anti-inflammatory
  •  Ostenil Plus injections for joint lubrication . 
  • Minimizes pain and ensures targeted delivery of medication.

At Freedom Care Clinics we insist on an ultrasound scan assessment prior to joint injections. This provides real time information to your clinician to ensure accurate diagnosis and delivery of medicine.  

Some patients may not be suitable for private steroid injections and private hyaluronic acid injections, such as those on some medications or with specific medical conditions, poorly controlled diabetes or if you are likely to have a joint replacement in the near future. 

Joint injections are considered safe, however as will all medical interventions there are some risks & side effects to consider such as; pain swelling stiffness and bruising, infection (rare), allergic reactions (rare), bleeding, nerve or blood vessel damage and increased pain. 

The effectiveness of musculoskeletal injections vary from person to person. Many individuals experience lasting relief, others short term improvements, and some others minor or no effect.
