Ultrasound Guided Injections/Diagnostics

For decades, many interventional procedures have been done blind, guided solely by palpating anatomical landmarks. However, it has now become the standard of care to use imaging guidance such ultrasound or fluoroscopy in order to safely perform musculoskeletal injections.  US guidance allows visualization in order to avoid injuring surrounding structures such as vessels and nerves.  It also exponentially increases accuracy in hitting your targeted tissues. At USA Sports Medicine, every procedure is performed with ultrasound guidance allowing for accuracy in locating the point of injection, thereby maximizing benefits of healing and/or pain relief.
