PAIN RELIEF INJECTIONS AVAILABLE
Updated: Dec 30, 2017
Horizon imaging clinics are proud to provide bulk-billed pain relief guided injections to our patients for symptomatic/inflammatory relief. Using Ultrasound or Computed Tomography (CT) guidance, this allows medications to be delivered directly to the site of inflammation.
Cortisone (a synthetic steroid medication) is effective in the treatment of pain caused by inflammation of the joint (arthritis), bursa (bursitis), synovium (synovitis) and tendon (tendinitis). If you have persistent pain in your shoulder, elbow, wrist, foot, or hip, you may be a candidate for this treatment.
We also provide therapeutic guided injections for many common conditions (e.g tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, ganglion cyst aspiration).
All injections are bulk-billed, which means no out-pocket cost for our patients. If this service may be of benefit to you, please consult with our General Practitioner. Cortisone injections can be a useful addition to the management of musculoskeletal/joint injuries and pain.
