Joints are places in the body where bones are connected, allowing for movement and flexibility. Damage to a joint from disease or injury can interfere with mobility causing pain and inflammation. Common areas most experience pain include hips, knees, low back, shoulders, and hand/wrist.
Joint pain is most commonly caused by arthritis, a degenerative disorder that causes damage to the cartilage, causing excess stress on the bone leading to pain and inflammation. If left untreated, joint pain may interfere with your daily activities, exercise, and worsen your body’s alignment therefore causing increased pain and muscle tension.
Joint injections allow us to immediately decrease the pain to the affected area by delivering a safe local anesthetic to lower inflammation, lubricate the joint, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself through therapeutic inflammation. Often for knee osteoarthritis/pain we are able to use a safe, effective gel injection to act as a cushion or lubricant for your joints and replenish the damaged cartilage. This substance is something that your body naturally produces called Hyaluronic acid. You and your doctor with determine how many injections your body needs.
Common Indications for Joint Injections
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
For up to 48 hours following your joint injection, you may need to avoid strenuous physical activities to give your joints time to react to the injection.
To maximize results, injections should be combined with other alternative treatment methods, such as chiropractic care and physical therapy. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be recommended for longer lasting, regenerative benefits.
