Ultrasound-guided injections use sound waves to determine the best place for medication to be injected. Ultrasound guidance allows for pinpoint accuracy for the best possible outcome.
Noninvasive treatments such as rest, custom orthotics, shockwave therapy, and bracing are usually the first-line approach for patients who have chronic pain. Ultrasound-guided injections might be the next step if more conservative treatments aren’t successful.
Some of the foot and ankle issues that might improve with injections are:
At the office of Dr. Daniel Geller, the team develops customized treatment plans for every patient, always putting your needs and goals first.
Several types of ultrasound-guided injections can relieve pain and promote healing, including:
Ultrasound-guided steroid injections quickly reduce inflammation, which relieves your pain and allows your body to heal more effectively.
Precision medicine - Platelet-Rich Plasma
Ultrasound-guided precision medicine injections stimulate healing within your body using natural substances. One example is platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which comes from your blood. PRP injections surround an injury with platelets and growth factors that trigger a healing response far more significant than the body typically provides.
Botox reduces muscle movement where it’s injected, and also has promising off-label uses. For example, ultrasound-guided Botox injections into the heel of patients who have plantar fasciitis can deactivate a neurotransmitter that controls pain sensations in the area to ease pain.
The team performs ultrasound-guided injections using a high-tech portable ultrasound device. They position an ultrasound probe around the treatment area, and the ultrasound waves bounce off the structures in your foot (joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, and fluids) to create live images.
The team views these images on a high-definition monitor, and uses this information to place your injection perfectly. This level of precision maximizes treatment effectiveness, helps prevent complications, and ensures a short treatment process.
Ultrasound-guided injections typically cause very little pain, but the team provides ice, topical numbing, or a local anesthetic (varies with injection type).
