Quicker Respite from Pain

Problems in the musculoskeletal system are often difficult to diagnose because they’re only detectable when the person is moving. After all, you have to stay still to get an X-ray taken! With our diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound in Delray Beach, FL, we can observe what is happening inside of a patient’s joint in real time as they use it. As a result, we can conclude whether the problem lies with a muscle, tendon, or ligament, allowing us to deliver treatment precisely where a patient needs it.

Ultrasound-Guided Joint and Nerve Blocks

For years, interventional injections have brought relief to patients suffering from many types of injuries and pain. Did you know, however, that most doctors actually have no real guidance when administering these injections? In essence, they’re doing these injections blindly, meaning there’s a chance that the medicine isn’t going where it needs to. There’s also the risk of the medicine infiltrating nearby blood vessels and nerves.

That’s why, at the Institute for Non-Surgical Orthopedics, we use ultrasound to guide our injections with remarkable precision. The medicine will be delivered exactly where it needs to be, avoiding neural and vascular entities while leading to a safer, more comfortable outcome and a quicker recovery.

Peripheral Nerve Hydrodisection

A compressed or pinched nerve is commonly to blame in many cases of musculoskeletal pain. Often, this occurs when a nerve must travel through a tiny space in the muscles. Inflammation or injury in these muscles can cause them to exert pressure on the nerve, resulting in sharp pain and/or numbness. Common examples of this include sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome. Our physicians can stop this pain with peripheral nerve hydrodissection. We inject a liquid solution near the agitated nerve, creating a cushion between it and the adjacent tissues, which alleviates the pressure that is causing your discomfort.

Barbotage for Calcific Tendinitis

Calcific tendinitis is a condition characterized by calcium deposits on tendons; it can limit mobility and cause pain. Our team can often help patients who are struggling with this condition using a procedure known as barbotage. First, we use our ultrasound technology to pinpoint the location of the calcium deposits. Then, we can insert a needle to break them up. As a result, you may be able to enjoy a great reduction in pain and increase in mobility. The entire procedure is quite short and involves minimal risk.
