Ligament and tendon injections for soft tissue injuries

Soft tissue injuries occur from sprains due to sports or overuse of a particular part of the body. Injuries can occur in muscles, tendons and ligaments through the body causing great pain or sometimes immobility. Even though these injuries are usually minor and can heal over time, occasionally more attention is required due to the injury.

A Fluoroscope, x-ray guided needle can in inserted in the ligament and/or tendon where the injury has occurred to heal the injury and provide normal movement in the muscle, ligament or tendon. If the treatment is successful the injection will only have to be administered a few more time in the first year.
