Ultrasound-guided joint and tendon injections
As opposed to “blind” injections, ultrasound-guided injections allow our physician to place the needle with complete accuracy. This increased precision means he can avoid potential problem areas, and helps to increase effectiveness of the injection.
Platelet-rich plasma injections
Activated platelets help in the healing process of many sport-related injuries, including sprains, strains and overuse injuries. While naturally occurring, platelets will help injuries heal over time; the injection of platelet-rich plasma accelerates healing time.
