What are Joint Aspirations

It is common for acute and chronic joint injuries to be associated with a lot of swelling and pain which is often the case at the knee and ankle. Inflammation is a necessary bodily response to injury and healing but excessive and stubborn long standing amounts can be detrimental to function and long term joint health. Using ultrasound guidance, we can inject a needle into the cavity of a joint and, using a syringe can draw out any excessive effusion (swelling) sitting internally. This can range from 5ml to 150ml of fluid and is associated with an immediate improvement in pain and function when done alongside a corticosteroid injection.
