If you're suffering from joint pain, you might be wondering if a joint injection could help relieve your symptoms. At Brentwood Primary Care, we provide joint injections for our patients as a way to help them find relief. Here's what you need to know about this treatment option.
A joint injection is a procedure in which medication is injected directly into the joint space. This can be done with or without ultrasound guidance. The most common type of medication used in a joint injection is a corticosteroid, which is a type of anti-inflammatory medication.
Corticosteroids help to reduce pain and swelling in the joints. They can also help to improve range of motion and function. In some cases, other types of medications may be used in addition to or instead of corticosteroids. These can include substances like hyaluronic acid or anesthetic agents.
Joint injections can be an effective way to relieve pain and improve function in patients with various types of joint problems. They can be particularly helpful for patients who are dealing with conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Other potential benefits include:
Side effects associated with joint injections are typically mild and temporary. These can include local pain and tenderness at the injection site, redness or bruising, and swelling. More serious side effects are rare but possible, so it's important to talk to your doctor about any concerns you may have prior to the procedure.
