Joint injections are used in aiding diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of joint conditions. Health Star Clinic provides joint injections for patients who are suffering from pain in and around the joints. Steroidal and non-steroidal injections are used to relieve pain and reduce inflammation around the joint. Local anesthetics are sometimes used to numb the area allowing for movement with reduced pain during treatment protocols such as physical therapy.
Joint Injections for Osteoarthritis
Joint injections can help in the treatment of osteoarthritis pain by relieving inflammation and reducing pain in and around the joint. Osteoarthritis joint injections provide rapid relief to the patient, usually within 24-48 hours of the injection. Pain relief generally lasts anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks; this is often long enough for the flare-up of osteoarthritis symptoms to die down.
Injections at Heath Star Clinic are always administered with a precision and care. In some cases a local anesthetic is applied to reduce any pain of the treatment. For the best pain management care for joint pain contact Health Star Clinic.
