Insight Medical Imaging provides pain management to help relieve various types of joint, back, and musculo-skeletal pain. This usually involves injecting cortisone into targeted joints, tendons, or bursa. Many people report relief from pain and improved quality of life for several months after an injection, although this can vary.
Our highly trained radiologists use fluoroscopy or ultrasound to precisely locate the target area specified by your doctor. Before the injection, the area is sterilized and the local anesthetic is administered (similar to what your dentist would use for a dental procedure).
Pain management injections are paid for by Alberta Health and there is no charge to patients.
