Ultrasound-Guided Injections

Ultrasound-guided injections are a noninvasive approach to treating joint pain and inflammation. Physicians use injections to reduce inflammation and swelling from an injured knee, shoulder, or hip joint.

The ultrasound produces real-time, clear images of your body to assist your physician with injecting the medication. When other conservative methods fail to provide adequate relief, your physician may recommend ultrasound-guided injections to manage the pain.

Your doctor may suggest injections if you have an injury or condition, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Postoperative pain
  • Inflammation of the joints
  • Chronic joint pain

While ultrasound-guided injections provide pain relief, they come with other benefits, including improved accuracy and less risk. At Tahoe Forest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we offer our patients:
