Muscle and joint injections under ultrasound guidance are a type of medical procedure in which a medication is injected into a muscle or joint using ultrasound to guide the needle to the proper location. Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.

Muscle and joint injections under ultrasound guidance are used to reduce pain and inflammation in people with various musculoskeletal conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and bursitis. The injections may contain medications such as corticosteroids, powerful anti-inflammatory drugs, or hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and can help lubricate and cushion the joints.

The procedure is usually performed in a doctor’s office or clinic, and the patient lies on an examination table while the injection is given. The skin over the injection site is numbed with a local anesthetic, and a tiny probe is placed on the skin to produce the ultrasound images. The needle is then inserted into the muscle or joint using ultrasound images to guide it to the proper location.

Muscle and joint injections under ultrasound guidance are generally safe, with a low risk of complications. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some potential risks, including infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. Your doctor will discuss the potential risks and benefits of a muscle or joint injection under ultrasound guidance with you and help you decide if it is the right treatment option for you.
