What Are Joint Injections and How Do They Work?
Joint injections are a non-surgical treatment option for relieving pain and inflammation in your joints. The injections can range from traditional corticosteroid injections to more innovative options, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cell injections. Based on your medical history, your Austin joint pain management specialists will determine which injection is best for you and your needs. This injection is then applied directly to the damaged joint tissue, allowing you to experience pain relief almost instantly. Free from pain, patients will improve their range of motion and therefore their ability to participate in physical therapy and movements that may have previously been too painful.
Joint Injections for Quick and Lasting Chronic Pain Relief
Joint injections are a minimally invasive procedure that can be applied to any joint, such as the ankles, hips, shoulders, knees, and wrists. If pain medication or physical therapy has proven unsuccessful in managing your joint pain or inflammation then joint injections may be a viable solution for you. Though not a permanent solution, our joint injections can bring nearly instant pain relief that can last several months or longer.
