Chris Creaghan is the injection therapist at Active Healthcare. With over 20 years of clinical experience in diagnosis, injection therapy and ultrasound scanning, Chris has a wealth of experience.
Previously Chris worked as the clinical lead for NHS Kirklees, working along side the regions orthopaedic consultants. Now working as a front-line clinician at several GP Practices, he mixes NHS and private work.
Chris states that the advantage with private work at Active Healthcare is that he has the time to perform full differential diagnosis and detailed scans along with guided injections. By working along side specialists in osteopathy and avoiding delays in accessing appropriate treatment, the healthcare requirements of clients can be delivered in a timely manner.
By delivering this service outside of the Hospital environment, Active Healthcare is able to pass on significant cost savings.
The complete package of care for Ultrasound guided injections, including a new patient examination and Ultrasound scan only costs £150.
Chris strongly believes that injections administered under guidance are both safer and more effective.
It is essential that injections are administered to suppress inflammation and not blindly injected ‘just where the pain is’. This can cause unnecessary damage.
Other treatments include the use of Ostenil. This is a Hyaluronic solution that helps restore the joint or tendons natural balance of synovial fluid.
