What Does This Mean For My Treatment?
Interventional orthopedics provides patients greater options to treat joint and other joint-related injuries to address pain relief and recovery without the need for surgery. Although surgery for some patients is determined to be necessary, many are able to find relief for knee pain, shoulder pain, and other painful joints through the use of interventional orthopedics and other less invasive treatment methods.
The Anatomy of a Joint: Why Image-Guided Joint Injections
Joints are complex anatomical structures made up of bones, ligaments, tendons, and fibrocartilage. As a result, it is essential for precise placement of the regenerative PRP or stem cells into the exact location that is the root cause of pain. Without image-guided injections, there is more likelihood that the dose can be spread generally beyond the site where treatment is needed the most.
