The eco-guided Therapy (TEG) is a novel technique that we use to treat soft tissue injuries of the locomotor system (muscle, ligaments, bursas or tendons). The peculiarity of these techniques in which they are assisted by a high frequency Echograph.

Initially a diagnosis of the injury is made (we have to know that we are trying to cure it) and then we can perform small procedures -even mini-surgeries- and / or administer treatments exactly in the affected area, which accelerates the recovery of the injury .

The most common injuries that can be treated are:

Tendinitis : Rotuliana, Aquilea, quadricipital, epicondylitis, Enthesitis.

Mechanics : Spring fingers

Neurological : Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Morton's Neuroma

Fasciitis : Plantar, Iliotibial band.

Bursitis : Aquilea, Rotuliana, Olecraniana.

Thanks to this therapy, biopsies can be performed to diagnose some diseases, and even perform eco-arthroscopic surgeries .

 

Eco-guided Infiltrations

We can aspirate fluid (bursitis, ganglions, cysts, ...), bruises (fibrillar tears, contusions) or infiltrate medication that recovers the lesion.

The medications to be administered can be:

- Plasma Rich in Platelets / Stem Cells

- Corticosteroids + Local Anesthetic

- Hyaluronic acid

- Transcutaneous serum therapy (Hydrodilution)

Advantages of the TEG

- Does not require hospital admission, treatment is performed on an outpatient basis

- High frequency ultrasound does not emit radiation

- Studies can be repeated to follow the evolution of the injury

- Easy comparison with the contralateral limb and its structure

- Localized and precise treatment.

Conclusion: We believe that the future of the treatment of these injuries depends on making an accurate diagnosis and an optimal treatment in which ultrasound can help us considerably.
