What is a cortisone infiltration?

Cortisone infiltrations (a powerful anti-inflammatory) are used for the treatment of several musculoskeletal problems, including:

shoulder pain (tendonitis, bursitis, impingement syndrome, osteoarthritis)

knee pain (osteoarthritis, meniscal tears, arthritis, crow's feet tendonitis)

elbow pain (epicondylitis)

Hip pain (osteoarthritis, trochanteric bursitis)

carpal tunnel syndrome

stenosing tenosynovitis (trigger finger)

osteoarthritis of the thumb

Arnold's neuralgia

Pain relief can last several months or be permanent. Infiltration can be repeated if symptoms recur.

A medial prescription is required to perform this examination.

What is an infiltration with a viscosupplement?

Infiltration is the injection of a viscous solution into a joint to relieve pain and improve range of motion.

Viscosupplementation infiltrations are used to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Pain relief can last 6 to 12 months and the infiltration can be repeated if symptoms recur. In general, viscosupplementation infiltration is very well tolerated. In rare cases, during the first 48 hours following treatment, a slight inflammation of the joint may occur, which can be relieved with ice.

The methods used ?

We offer two methods of infiltration

under ultrasound

under fluoroscopy

Your doctor will indicate the prescribed infiltration method in his prescription. Depending on the area to be treated, the radiologist may modify this method for better results.
