What is meant by “One Stop Shop” ?
What we mean by a “One Stop Shop” is that we offer an ultrasound guided steroid injection but not done in isolation!
As a patient with a musculoskeletal problem – a problem affecting a joint, muscle, tendon or bone- it is important to find out what is the underlying cause of your pain! This is of crucial importance.
Getting to the source of the problem
Lets take a real life example to explain this point on a topic that most people can relate to.
If you had a problem with your laptop and the engineer took one look at it and without carrying out any testing said: “There is clearly a problem with the hard drive and I can replace it for your for £150 and this would fix it ” Would you trust him? Or would you perhaps think “well without doing any testing how can you be so sure that there is a problem with the hard drive”?
Thorough physical examination
We at Sonoscope passionately believe that anyone who undergoes any form of injection therapy requires a thorough physical examination. When it comes to physical health an accurate clinical diagnosis underpins any treatment that follows. Once the source of your problem has been found the treatment is informed by the examination.
The injection following the examination will be done under ultrasound guidance which means it will be pin point accurate. Many studies have shown that ultrasound guided injections are much more accurate than unguided injections this has the added benefit of increased patient safety.
What we provide: Expert physical examination, Diagnostic ultrasound and an Ultrasound guided injection for an all inclusive fee and done in one single session.
