Joint Injections Could Be Your Key to Pain-Free Movement

When your joints ache, it can be hard to stay active. Plans get canceled, and even standing up starts to seem difficult.

Losing mobility and freedom to joint pain can be detrimental to your physical and mental well-being. To stay active on your feet this winter and spring, talk to the care team at Performance Pain & Sports Medicine about your treatment options to address joint pain. We have six facilities to support patients in three states. And with joint injections, we can successfully alleviate your pain and restore your quality of life.

How do joint injections help with pain?

Whether you have joint pain related to arthritis, or suffer from hip, knee, or wrist pain, the Performance Pain & Sports Medicine team can recommend the best therapies to soothe your symptoms.

In joint injection therapy, your provider delivers a shot of cortisone directly into the affected joint. The corticosteroids in your injection work rapidly to decrease inflammation in the treatment area. As inflammation and swelling subside, your joint pain eases, and your range of motion can be restored.

You can receive multiple treatments with injection therapy. However, using steroids over a long period of time can have some health risks, including risks of temporary increases in pain and inflammation. Talk to your provider about the right injection therapy treatment plan for your unique health care needs.

What joints can you treat with injection therapy?

Joint injections can help resolve pain in joints around your body, from your toes to your hands. Many patients use joint injections to address knee and back pain, but the procedure can be used on any joint where you experience pain, discomfort, or limited range of motion. You may also benefit from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, which can be delivered to your affected joint at the same time.

At Performance Pain & Sports Medicine, we also offer facet joint injections, targeting the individual vertebrae in your spine to resolve stubborn back pain or neck pain. In this procedure, we deliver an injection of anesthetic or steroid medication into the facet joints in your spine. We use X-rays to precisely guide your facet joint injections for absolute accuracy in your treatment.

Benefits of joint injection therapy

Joint injections can be an optimal way to handle stubborn or lingering joint pain. The same-day procedure is minimally invasive, and you won’t need to take much time for recovery after your treatment sessions. With joint injections, the Performance Pain & Sports Medicine team has a high success rate for reducing or even totally resolving joint pain.
