High volume injections
High volume injections have been shown to be effective in the management of chronic Achilles and Patellar Tendinopathies that have not responded to initial conservative measures. Hight volume injections involves administering a large volume of mainly saline (water), local anaesthetic and a small amount of corticosteroid.
This aims to stop the infiltration of blood vessels and nerve endings that grow into the swollen tendon to reduce pain and allow better compliance with appropriate rehab.
