Has your doctor discussed therapeutic injections for managing your pain?
Your doctor may have recommended a therapeutic injection to help reduce the pain you are experiencing, or to help pinpoint the source of your pain. A local anaesthetic is used to temporarily dull the pain in the area being treated and often a steroid is also used to help reduce inflammation or irritation of a nerve, tendon or ligament.
At Canada Diagnostic Centres, we use image-guidance – meaning we use either ultrasound or CT to help our radiologist ensure the most precise placement of the needle in order to maximize the success of the injection.
To ensure you are a good candidate for an injection at Canada Diagnostic, our radiologists will review your doctor’s referral and diagnostic imaging before we make an appointment with you.
Areas we treat: Shoulder / Elbow / Hip / Knee / Ankle / Lumbar Region
