What Are Joint Injections Used For?
Joint injections are a type of pain relief that can give a person a significant level of improvement in the way their joints move and feel. If you suffer from pain in your knees, shoulders, or other joints, this type of treatment can help you. Generally, this type of procedure is part of a more comprehensive plan that may include physical rehabilitation, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and massage therapy. It may be a part of spinal decompression therapy as well.
Joint Injections Can Treat Numerous Conditions.
We can use joint injections to soothe pain and reduce inflammation in most joints. This includes providing help for:
Psoriatic arthritis and more
The injections are not painful, but they can give you the help you need to get back to move again without feeling physical pain.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS
For those suffering from physical pain, whether from an injury or from degrading of the joint over time, trigger point injections can offer significant help. Unlike corticosteroid injections that often have a number of side effects, all natural solutions exist that can offer a better long-term outcome. This is often done as a part of trigger point therapy. Trigger points are areas that surround the endings of the nerve. These nerve endings typically become very painful and can radiate pain in various directions. Injections can help to minimize this.
Comprehensive Treatment and Therapy for Joints
Joint pain can be caused by many things including the wearing down of the cartilage and fluid-filled sac within the joint that allows for movement. Injury can also play a role. When this happens, our chiropractic team will work closely with you to better understand the underlying cause. We'll pinpoint the cause and then offer treatment options such as the following.
Joint Injections: This works to reduce the actual inflammation present. Injections are not painful, but they can work well to restore joint movement.
Chiropractic Adjustments: A component of joint therapy is also to adjust the alignment of the joint to ensure it moves properly. This can reduce the pain and pressure on the joint and give you the movement you need without further damage to the surrounding tissues.
Massage Therapy: To help stimulate healing in this area, it is often important for us to use massage therapy. This is a natural way to improve the overall inflammation levels present.
Spinal Decompression: For some patients, the compression of joints in the spine causes pain throughout the body. Spinal decompression can alleviate that.
Acupuncture, physical therapy, and other primary care options are available as well. If you are experiencing joint pain, contact our team first for the treatment you need.
