Diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries and wear and tear conditions

We offer a range of interventional procedures to treat orthopaedic injuries, sports injuries, arthritis and other degenerative conditions. The treatments are minimally invasive and use Ultrasound and X-ray guidance to specifically target the location that is generating the pain and inflammation. If required, the treatments can be carried out at the time of the initial ultrasound scan and diagnosis to avoid delay. They are performed as an out-patient service.

Corticosteroid or Cortisone injections

Image guided corticosteroid and local anaesthetic injections are used to treat many inflammatory conditions, such as bursitis, arthritis and tendonitis.

PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

PRP uses the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bone.

A list of the most common conditions we treat

Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow is a condition that causes pain around the outside of the elbow. It's clinically known as Lateral Epicondylitis. It often occurs after strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, near the elbow joint.

Golfer's Elbow

Golfer's Elbow, also known as Medial Epicondylitis, causes pain and inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow. The pain centres on the bony bump on the inside of your elbow and may radiate into the forearm.

Rotator Cuff Injury

The Rotator Cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that attach to the bones of the shoulder joint, allowing the shoulder to move and keeping it stable. Rotator Cuff Tendinitis refers to irritation of these tendons and inflammation of the bursa (a normally smooth layer) lining these tendons.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

CTS is a medical condition due to compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the Carpal Tunnel. The main symptoms are pain, numbness, and tingling, in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring fingers.

Calcific Tendonitis

Calcific Tendonitis is a condition that causes the formation of a small, usually about 1-2 centimetre size, calcium deposit within the tendons of the Rotator Cuff. These deposits are usually found in patients at least 30-40 years old and have a higher incidence in diabetics.

Trigger Finger Syndrome

Trigger Finger Syndrome is a painful condition that causes the fingers or thumb to catch or lock when bent. In the thumb, it is called Trigger Thumb. Trigger Finger happens when tendons in the finger or thumb become inflamed. Together, the tendons and muscles in the hands and arms bend and straighten the fingers and thumbs.

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder, also known as Adhesive Capsulitis, is a painful and disabling disorder of unclear cause in which the shoulder capsule, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion and causing chronic pain.

Jumper's Knee

Jumper's Knee, also known as Patella Tendonitis or Patella Tendinopathy is an inflammation or injury of the Patella Tendon, the cord-like tissue that joins the Patella (kneecap) to the Tibia (shin bone).

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis, is an overuse injury of the Achilles Tendon, the band of tissue that connects calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone. Achilles Tendinitis most commonly occurs in runners who have suddenly increased the intensity or duration of their runs.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a disorder that results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot. The pain is usually most severe with the first steps of the day or following a period of rest. Pain is also frequently brought on by bending the foot and toes up towards the shin and may be worsened by a tight Achilles Tendon. 

Morton's Neuroma

Morton's Neuroma is thickening of the tissue around the nerve between the bases of the toes (usually between the third and fourth toes). Foot pain, odd sensations, or numbness over the ball of the foot are the usual symptoms. It is more common in women and can be a result of wearing high heels or tight shoes.
