The Ultrasound Guided Injection Physiotherapy Clinic

Held at our Stanstead Abbott Clinic.

 

 What is involved?

This has been created as a 'one - stop - shop' for fast acting diagnosis and pain relief.

On arrival you will receive a thorough clinical assessment combined with an ultrasound scan of the area. 

From this, the clinician will be able to determine the precise location of the where the pain is coming from and where to inject if appropriate

After the appointment you and your GP will receive a written report as well as a follow up call 7-10days post injection.

Who Takes the Clinic?

The clinic is run by Rob Mast, as written in his bio - Rob is a highly experienced Physiotherapist who has performed thousands of guided injections for the NHS and privately over the last 20years.

Who is appropriate?

We have worked hard to provide a highly specialised - physiotherapy led diagnosing and pain relieving service for musculoskeletal injuries.

 

Examples of these are written with the types of injections provided.

How to book in?

You do not need to be referred by the GP to access this highly specialised clinic. 

With long NHS waiting lists we have had a significant increase in self referred patients who have been advised they need an injection.

In this circumstance we would require a brief phone call triage to make sure you are appropriate for this service.

Ultrasound Guided Hyaluronic Acid Injection

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body. It is found in the fluid that lubricates and nutritions the joint.

The lubricant also provides shock absorbance and smooth movement of that joint.

When you have a condition such as osteoarthritis (degenerative change to the joint) the lubricant becomes thinner and less effective.

The injection is targeted into the effected joint, adding the the body's natural hyaluronic acid level, providing reduced pain and nutrition to the joint.

What does it help?

Osteoarthritis

Ostenil: £300

Ultrasound Diagnostics

What is Ultrasound Diagnostics?

Just like a pregnancy scan, the ultrasound can be used to provide a picture of the tissues underneath the skin.

How is it used?

The ultrasound is used in conjunction with a thorough clinical assessment to improve the accuracy of your diagnosis and therefore overall management of the injury. It also helps plan the location and type of injection (if required).

What conditions can it identify?

Ligament tears

Muscle tears

Bursitis

Osteoarthritis

Gluteal Tendinopathy

Golfers/ Tennis Elbow

Rotator Cuff Tears and Tendinopathy

Baker's cyst

Carpel Tunnel

Morton's Neuroma

Plantar Fasciitis

Femoral -Acetabular Impingement

... and many more

Ultrasound Guided Hydrodistension Injection

How does it work?

Corticosteroid, saline and anaesthetic are carefully injected into the joint to help stretch the capsule which is restricting movement.

It is strongly advised after 24hours you follow up with physiotherapy, and restart stretching exercises to maintain the regained range.

The anaesthetic will provide initial pain relief then the steroid pain relief will kick in after several days.

What does it help?

This is a great injection for frozen shoulder.

The GP would often order an x ray to rule out any other boney pathology but normally they will return normal.

£275

Ultrasound Guided Steroid Injection

How does it work?

A cortisone/ corticosteroid injection is an anti-inflammatory which can be specifically directed to the soft tissue causing pain.

The steroid can help with swelling, stiffness and overall pain. 

What does it help?

​Burisitis

Osteoarthritis

Carpel Tunnel

Morton's Neuroma

Stubborn Tendinopathy's such as;

Golfer's/ Tennis elbow

de Quervan's

Tibialis Posterior

Rotator Cuff

Gluteal

How long does it last?

It often takes 7-10 days to notice a difference and unfortunately how long the benefits last is individual.

At Byron & Atkinson Physiotherapy we advise using the steroid injection to compliment your rehabilitation. The steroid injection can provide that window of opportunity to push on through with directed exercise. With this being the case the need for a repeat injection is low.

£225

Ultrasound Guided Barbotage Procedure

How does it work?

Barbotage is a technique that uses corticosteroid with local anaesthetic to break up and aspirate (remove) the calcium deposits (where possible).

Due to the nature of the pathology and the need to break down calcium deposits, Barbotage is an aggressive procedure but very effective in reducing pain in the long term.

What does it help?

Calcific tendinopathy

(most commonly in the shoulder)

This is where calcium deposits are found with in the tendon.

This condition does not always follow an incident/ injury.

It is often a very quick and acute onset of shoulder pain which restricts movement and sleep.

£325

This injection is not available to book online - please contact for further information and to book in.
