The Center for Pain Medicine is proud to provide state of the art, cutting edge technology with ultrasound- guided injections to treat complex musculoskeletal pain. Together with a comprehensive medical history, physical exam and routine static imaging, such as X-rays and MRIs, ultrasound-guided injections allow pain specialists to better diagnosis and treat pain.
- The cornerstone of interventional therapy relies on accurate injections into very specific locations.
- Ultrasound-guided injections accurately deliver medication to painful target sites and thereby provide the greatest amount of pain reduction.
- Unlike CT scans and fluoroscopy, an ultrasound-guided injection does not expose the patient to radiation.
At the Center for Pain Medicine, we believe ultrasound imaging is one more tool in our
multidisciplinary arsenal in the treatment of pain in our patients.
As with all treatment modalities, we encourage you to discuss this type of intervention with your UC San Diego pain specialist.
