Ultrasound guided injections are an advanced, precise way to deliver effective medications to targeted areas of the body. Many patients suffering from chronic, debilitating pain (such as that caused by inflammation of a tendon or joint), find that they are able to return to previous activity levels after precision injections, enjoying both a reduction in pain and an increase in their range of motion.
