Joint injections can be administered to multiple parts of the body, including major joints in the knee, elbows, and the three different regions of the spine.
During these injections, a local anesthetic with the combination of a steroid solution will be placed in the joint to block pain symptoms. These injections are not intended to provide long-term relief but can offer such benefits to allow a patient to conduct physical therapy to rehabilitate their injury. Individuals who tend to benefit from joint injections have various types of arthritic conditions of the spine.
Our providers perform hundreds of these types of injections each year and will go over every aspect of what to expect when having one of these procedures in our facility.
