RELIEVE: As revealed by ultrasound image scanning thousands of joints over the years many times inflammatory fluids build up, causing swelling. These fluid accumulations are called effusions. These effusions are like a stagnant pond, filled with toxic and inflammatory substances that further damage joints and cause pain. An important first step in many cases is to aspirate the toxic fluid using ultrasound imaging then inject the joint with a low dose of cortisone to “turn off” the inflammatory residual elements in the joint before moving on to the next step in the treating cycle.
