Using Precision Medicine to Deliver Targeted Treatments

Centura Health Sports Medicine performs all joint and tendon injections using ultrasound guidance. Ultrasound is an imaging technology that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce dynamic images of the body. Studies show that ultrasound guided injections improve the accuracy of the treatment and are less painful. The accuracy rate for blind injections (injections performed without imaging) is as low as 30 percent.  With ultrasound, the accuracy of joint injections is nearly 100 percent.

Helping Athletes Reach Their Potential

Athletes put a lot of time, commitment and sweat into their sport but there’s also science. The best athletes know how to use science to their advantage. Our doctors work with competitive athletes to help them maximize their training and performance. We offer Lactate Threshold and VO2 Max testing to help athletes determine the highest intensity at which they can perform and sustain their efforts without hitting a wall.
