Melbourne Radiology Clinic specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of sporting injuries which can occur in the Olympic athlete down to the recreational footballer and jogger. A particular study such as an MRI scan may be used initially to obtain an accurate diagnosis. If an injury is not responding to a conservative rehabilitation programme, such as physiotherapy and exercise, then an injection may be appropriate.
Melbourne Radiology Clinic offers injections for the treatment of muscle injuries and tendon disorders. Options include:
- Autologous Blood Injections (ABI)
- PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
- Polidocanol injections
- Autologous Tenocyte Implantation/Therapy (ATI/ATT)
These may be used to treat a variety of conditions, such as Achilles and patellar tendonitis, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) and the lateral hip (gluteus medius and minimus tendons).
