NEW Services – Joint Injections
Recently, we expanded our list of services to include seven different types of joint injections! These new services are a non-surgical method of relief for anyone suffering from acute to chronic pain. Since each of these joint injections have been designed to target specific areas and issues, the type that your body would need depends on the level of pain you are experiencing as well as where the pain is coming from.
Trigger Point Injections
Named after the painful knot that forms when a muscle cannot relax, our trigger point injection is administered directly into the source of pain to help alleviate muscle tightness. This type of joint injection can be used to reduce muscle pain in the arms, legs, lower back, and neck as well as treat fibromyalgia and tension headaches.
Serving as the largest joint between the base of the spine and the pelvis, the sacroiliac joint is a common site for discomfort that often radiates to other areas of the body. Our sacroiliac injection works to alleviate pain by reducing inflammation in the body.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections are created using a patient’s own blood to restore health using the body’s own healing factors. Those suffering from osteoarthritis and sports related injuries can benefit greatly from this technique.
This new field of medicine aims to regenerate human cells, tissues, and organs by stimulating the body’s self-repairing abilities. Regenerative injections can assist in curing previously untreatable injuries or diseases.
Intrarticular Joint Injections
Sometimes used to determine the source of pain, intrarticular joint injections can reduce inflammation in areas such as the shoulders, hips, and knees. These injections are administered by applying a local anesthetic and injecting anti-inflammatory steroid medications directly into the joint.
This widely known traditional alternative medicine practice helps promote recovery and improves overall function in the body. Some of the conditions that acupuncture has been proven to treat range from musculoskeletal problems to nausea, migraines, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and even infertility.
These injections are administered into the fluid filled pouches, or bursa, surrounding a joint. Bursa injections are helpful in providing pain relief through the act of decreasing inflammation.
