Ultrasound-Guided Injections

The orthopedic physicians at Powell & Jones Orthopedics Center in Birmingham, Alabama are pleased to offer our patients an advanced technology to help them get effective pain relief: ultrasound-guided injections.

Many patients with chronic pain and inflammation in a joint or tendon, whether from injury or conditions such as arthritis, can find relief with decreased inflammation and a reduction in overall pain levels from targeted, ultrasound-guided injections.

These injections can be cortisone, a steroid anti-inflammatory that can help to provide quick, though usually temporary, pain relief, or viscosupplementation, a series of more concentrated injections that can assist in reducing pain and increasing motion for a longer period of time. This is especially true for knee arthritis.

During an ultrasound-guided injection, we use ultrasound to view precise images of the location being injected. Using ultrasound to guide needle placement ensures the medication is injected into the most accurate place in your hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, or wrist to provide you with the greatest possible benefit.

Our doctors can see exactly where they are administering the medication, which increases accuracy and improves results.
