Image guided injections are used for the management of acute as well for chronic conditions like tendinopathies, ligament tears, muscle tears, frozen shoulder etc. The injection therapies not only help in ensuring that our patients are pain free but would also help in early recovery and fasten up the rehabilitation. Injection under imaging guidance assures medication delivery at the intended target structures accurately. There are number of interventional procedures being offered at YOS, some of which include intraarticular/bursal/peritendinous/intraarticular steroid injection, hydro dilatation, High volume injections, Platelet rich plasma injections, perineural injections/nerve root blocks and facet joint injections.
These injections are completely safe and administered in a sterile environment keeping in mind best practice as defined by National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), UK.
Number of regenerative therapies offered at YOS include platelet rich plasma, prolotherapy and Hyaluronon injections. YOS Physicians are highly specialised in image guided orthobiological treatments for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. PRP therapy, one the most commonly used for to encourage tissue regeneration, comprises of using derivates of one’s own blood to kick start the healing process when it might have stalled or slowed down. PRP therapy has been around for about 20 years now but has mostly been used for elite professional athletes. PRP has been touted as panacea by numerous sports professionals across the world and has salvaged careers by restoring various injured tissues and joint surfaces. PRPs have also been extensively used to heal degenerated tissues and joints thereby improving function.
Hyaluronnan, another commonly used injectable substance is a the lubricant that is naturally produced in the body and helps smooth functioning of synovial joints like knees, hips, ankles and shoulders. Sometimes, due to chronic heavy workloads or due to degenerative changes, this natural joint lubricant ‘dries up’. It is now possible to top up the joints with this lubricant by injecting an identical lab made substance that has been shown to have virtually no side effects and can significantly reduce pain and stiffness as well as restoring function.
We at YOS, in keeping with our promise to deliver top quality sports health are making these interventions available to everyone.
