They are able to uniquely combine expert musculoskeletal assessment skills along with diagnostic sonography to confirm diagnosis of your condition and perform ultrasound guided injections where appropriate and indicated.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ULTRASOUND GUIDED INJECTION?

There is a significant body of research which demonstrates that ultrasound guided injections give better outcomes such as improved levels of pain relief, longer lasting benefits, and improve the post-injection function of the injected area, compared with injections that are done without ultrasound guidance ( e.g.blind/surface marked injections). There is also growing evidence that guiding the injection reduces the risk of trauma to local tissues or misplacement of the needle and/or the injection substance. This improves the safety of the injection and reduces the risk of adverse events associated with injection therapy. Because the location of the injection is more precisely known it reduces the chances of having unnecessary injections. Many patients find ultrasound guided injections to be more comfortable as often the required depth of the injection can be reduced

HOW DO I BOOK?

To book for an injection you can call our booking team on 0207 482 3875 or email direct to info@complete-physio.co.uk requesting an appointment for an injection. When booking please ensure we have your full name, date of birth, your address and GP contact details. There are patient information leaflets which give information about the specific injections available. You will be sent a medical screening and consent form to complete and forward back to us or bring along on the day. It also asks questions about past medical history and any reasons why we may need to seek advice from your GP before proceeding with the injections, i.e., IDDM or patients taking Warfarin. This also provides us with the information to raise the prescription for your injection. On the day you will be seen, assessed and evaluated with ultrasound scan. The findings of which will be discussed with you before proceeding with ultrasound guided injection.
