Ultrasound-Guided Injections

To help our patients experience improved strength and range of motion, our orthopedic experts at Appalachian Orthopedics remain committed to providing comprehensive bone, joint, and muscle care that meets their needs. By implementing the most advanced and state-of-the-art methods, our doctors and staff can help our patients receive the exceptional care they deserve.

Your doctor may recommend ultrasound-guided injections to manage pain if other conservative methods do not provide adequate relief.

By using ultrasound guidance, our doctors can take advantage of its capabilities using sound waves to visualize the joint, ligament, or tendon structure. This method provides real-time, clear images to improve the accuracy of your injections and, in turn, increase the effectiveness.
