ULTRASOUND-GUIDED PAIN TREATMENT

WHAT IS ULTRASOUND-GUIDED PAIN TREATMENT

Ultrasound imaging, uses high frequency sound waves to provide direct visualization of various soft tissues of the body such as nerves, tendons and muscle. It also enables real-time needle advancement by the pain physician to the target area and hence the precise location of the medication injected is assured, improving patient care.

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES IT TREAT

Some examples of ultrasound-guided chronic pain applications include

  • Cervical nerve root block and treatment

  • Stellate ganglion block

  • Peripheral nerve block and treatment

  • Blocks of painful stump neuromas

  • Caudal epidural injection

  • Deep muscle (piriformis, obturator internus) trigger point injection

  • Joint injections (Knee, shoulder, hip, elbow)

  • Injection for tendonitis, tenosynovitis, bursitis

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS

There may be some discomfort, including swelling and bruising at the site of the treatment, but this generally goes away after a few days.

HOW LONG DOES PAIN RELIEF LAST

The degree of pain relief varies, depending on the cause and location of the pain. Patients treated with Ultrasound-Guided Pain treatment can experience pain relief that can last for years.

IS IT SAFE?

Ultrasound-guided pain treatments have proven to be a safe and effective way to treat pain. Besides accuracy, the use of ultrasound to guide injection/treatment has being shown to reduce the number of attempts, procedure time and procedure-related complications due to anatomical variation.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?

You may eat or drink as normal on the day of the exam
