Viscosupplementation refers to the injection of a hyaluronan preparation into the joint. Hyaluronan is a natural substance present in the joint fluid that assists in lubrication.
High Volume Injection (HVI)
A High Volume Injection can be used to treat tendonitis/tendinopathy of the large lower limb tendons (Patellar and Achilles). The procedure involves infiltration of fluid into the interface between the tendon (Achilles or Patellar tendon) and the adjacent fat pad. This is thought to disrupt the ingrowth of blood vessels/nerves seen in tendinopathy and therefore have an effect on pain and local sensitivity.
Our blood consists of a liquid component known as plasma. It also consists of three main solid components which include the red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets. Platelets play an important role in forming blood clots. They also consist of special proteins, known as growth factors, which help with our body’s healing process.
Intraarticluar Knee Injection
An intra-articular knee injection is a very effective form of treatment where medicine is delivered directly into the knee joint with the primary objective of relieving pain from conditions such as arthritis.
While surgical interventions remain to be the great option for the majority of patients, more and more patients are now looking for alternatives which produce similar or better results.
N-stride injection is used to treat knee osteoarthritis. It is prepared from blood extracted from your body and is rich in anabolic growth factors, special proteins involved in the body’s healing process and anti-in?ammatory proteins responsible for suppressing inflammation in your knee joints.
Lipogems / Stem Cell Injections
Lipogems is a regenerative medicine treatment which harvests adipose tissue (fat) from your own body and processes it via a unique system into an injectable substance with remarkable healing and regenerative properties. It may be used to treat various orthopaedic, cardiovascular, neuromuscular and autoimmune conditions.
Foot injections are steroids that are injected into your foot to relieve pain and inflammation. Cortisol is a hormone that is produced in the human body and functions to reduce stress and inflammation. Steroids are synthetic drugs that resemble cortisol and are used in treating joint pain.
Ultrasound Guided Hip Injections
An ultrasound scan is an imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound-guided hip joint injections are used to diagnose the underlying cause and relieve hip pain. The injection consists of a special mixture of an anaesthetic and a steroid that blocks pain impulses and reduces inflammation in the injected area.
Trochanteric Bursa Injections
A trochanteric bursa injection is a minimally invasive procedure in which medicine is injected directly into the trochanteric bursa in the hip joint using a thin needle and syringe to relieve pain and inflammation. The injection usually contains a combination of numbing medicine and cortisone (an anti-inflammatory agent).
Sacroiliac Joint Injections
Sacroiliac joints (SI joint) are joints in the lower back region, where the sacrum and ilium bones join. Even though these joints are small and have limited motion, they have an important role in connecting your spine to the pelvic bone and the lower part of your body.
Intraarticluar Knee Injection
Knee pain and stiffness can be disabling and difficult to treat. It can limit an individual’s lifestyle and negatively impact body image and emotional well-being.
Arthrosamid is a novel, safe, and innovative injection treatment used to treat people with osteoarthritis of the knee. It is a non-biodegradable hydrogel injected into the knee to relieve and treat pain caused by osteoarthritis. It is administered as a single-dose treatment and offers long-acting pain relief without the need for surgery; the result is improved knee function, providing patients with sustained relief by decreasing stiffness and pain and improving the overall quality of life.
Cortisone is a corticosteroid released by the adrenal gland in response to stress and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent.
Steroids are medications with anti-inflammatory properties that may be injected into areas of the body such as the joints to relieve pain and swelling. They are fast-acting and more effective than oral anti-inflammatory medications which can sometimes cause stomach upset.
