Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Therapy

Using various cutting edge injection therapies and techniques, we provide non-surgical approaches and procedures to assist in the healing of certain musculoskeletal (MSK) ailments. Your body has the power to heal itself of many problems and we encourage this process conservatively and try to avoid surgical intervention.

We provide these services with advanced ultrasound technology to eliminate the guess work associated with traditional "blind" injections and therapy.  Dr. Miles was one of the first doctors in the state of Georgia credentialed in musculoskeletal ultrasound by the ARDMS and formally Registered in Musculoskeletal Sonography (RMSK.)  In addition to therapeutic interventions, MSK ultrasound offers certain diagnostic capabilities that cannot be seen with X-ray, CT, or MRI.

Dr. Miles was tutored by orthopedists and sports medicine physicians in the art and science of joint and tendon injections and has been performing these injections for over a decade. He is also experienced and trained in the newer procedures and techniques. Recent advances in musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging have made the procedures vastly more accurate and easy to provide in a comfortable office setting. This setting avoids exorbitant costs of surgery centers and operating suites.

Specific joints we inject include the: shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, fingers, hip, knee, ankle, foot, toes, as well as the sacroiliac joint (SI joint.) At this time we are not injecting the spine.

Some of the various syndromes we treat include Rotator Cuff Syndromes, Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow,) Medial Epicondylitis (golfer's elbow,) DeQuervain's tenosynovitis, Greater Trochanteric Bursitis, SI Joint Pain Syndrome, Piriformis Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and many various other Tendinitis and Bursitis and Arthritis conditions.

Depending on the type of procedure you need we may be able to perform the procedure on the same day. We may instead have to set you up for a separate procedure time or have you complete further evaluation steps first.
