Ultrasound can visualize the affected structure and thus confirm the indication of infiltration.
Guidance of the needle by ultrasound makes it possible to place the medication in the tissues more precisely than a blind infiltration.
The effectiveness of the infiltration is optimized and the chances of having to repeat the infiltrations are minimized. Indeed, according to a study published in the journal Rheumatology in 2003, the successful infiltration rate increases by 35% with ultrasound guidance.
If pain persists and you need help, our multidisciplinary team will be able to get you back on track quickly.
Another 2004 confirms that 6 weeks after infiltration, pain relief and shoulder function is significantly better with ultrasound guidance. Always keen to apply the most efficient processes, the Chiromedic Center is happy to help make this technology available.
