During infiltration, cortisone or local anaesthetics are injected precisely into the painful area or the blood vessel.
On the one hand, the treatment by our experienced doctors is suitable for the therapy of pain in the musculoskeletal system that arises due to inflammatory processes. Infiltration often immediately breaks the pain cycle. But depending on the composition of the medication administered, it can also be used to treat the underlying disease. Infiltrations can also be used as a diagnostic method to find or recognise the source of pain and are therefore useful for e.g.,
- Shoulder pain
- Knee and hip joint complaints
- Tennis elbow
- Wear and tear at the joints
- Spine issues
The injection is entered directly into the painful area, either the muscle or tendon insertion, the joint cavity or the nerve root. Depending on the intensity and duration of the pain, infiltrations may be necessary only once or several times.
