Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and uncomfortable condition of the hand. In this condition, the nerves in the carpal tunnel overlap which causes pain and numbness in the palm and fingers. We offer the most effective, minimally invasive method to relieve you from the condition. We provide relief by injecting saline solution into a nerve within this carpal tunnel physical therapy. This helps it separate from the surrounding tissue and reduces pressure. We locate this nerve precisely via an ultrasound machine. This allows our medical staff to provide precise doses in accurate places, which ensures a quicker healing process.

Joint Injections:

Joint injections are another quick, minimally invasive technique to improve chronic joint pain. They help manage joint pain effectively while the body heals itself from the injury. These injections combine two drugs: local anesthesia and a long-lasting corticosteroid. The combined work of these two drugs includes numbing the joint pain for immediate relief via lidocaine, while the corticosteroid reduces inflammation and pain. Another such procedure includes injecting hyaluronic acid into the joint space. This is a gel-like substance that reduces friction and allows the joints to roll over each other.
