Paul: Our Pain Management Center at Varsity Lakes provides these minimally invasive procedures with the aim to help patients relieve, reduce, or manage chronic and acute pain. So we’re gonna do this injection for you today. So we’re g onna clean your skin, disinfect it, then using the ultrasound to tell us where the joint is, we’re gonna take some fluid away from the joint and then put the medication back into the joint. Benefits are multifold. First of all, it’s diminished the acute in flammation that occurs in the joints. With reduced inflammation, the patient should experience reduced pain. With reduced pain, the patient should have improved mobility with regards to the joint. It’s going into exactly where it needs to go. Finish ed . Her e at QDI Varsity Lakes, we perform hundreds of pain management treatments each year.
