Direct Tendon Injections.
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 imaging 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.
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).
Melbourne Radiology Clinic offers injections for the treatment of muscle injuries and tendon disorders.
