Peripheral Joint Injections
Find Relief with Peripheral
Deterioration, arthritis, and inflammation can take a toll on the joints in our bodies, leading to pain, limited mobility, and reduced functional capacity. The peripheral joints, including the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hips, knees, and ankles, are particularly susceptible to inflammation that can be disabling. At Airport Plaza Spine & Wellness, our dedicated pain specialists offer effective treatment plans to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance the quality of life for patients dealing with peripheral joint pain. One such treatment option is Peripheral Joint Injections.
When a joint is injured or deteriorating, it may suffer from inflammation, friction, or cartilage damage that causes persistent pain. Peripheral Joint Injections are non-surgical procedures in which a solution containing a local anesthetic and a long-lasting steroid is administered directly to the damaged joint tissue. The local anesthetic provides immediate relief during the procedure, while the steroid takes a few days to reduce inflammation and provide longer-lasting relief for several weeks or even a few months. This allows patients to experience pain relief, improve their range of motion, and engage in physical therapy exercises that were previously difficult.
To ensure precise and effective injections, we utilize precision-guided Fluoroscopy for accurate placement of the medications into the affected joint. In many cases, peripheral joint injections can be repeated every few months to sustain pain relief. Additionally, these injections can be complemented with other therapies and treatment modalities as part of our multidisciplinary approach to chronic joint pain at Airport Plaza Spine & Wellness.
If you are living with chronic joint pain and seeking relief without resorting to invasive surgery or reliance on narcotics, we encourage you to reach out to Airport Plaza Spine & Wellness today.
