Joint pain can significantly impact your quality of life, making it difficult to carry out even the most basic activities. At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, we offer a range of joint injection therapies designed to help our patients manage their pain and improve their mobility.
In this service page, we'll explore what joint injections are, the different types of joint injections available, and why they may be the right choice for you.
Joint injections are a type of procedure where a medication, such as a local anesthetic or corticosteroid, is injected directly into a painful joint. The goal of the injection is to reduce inflammation and provide pain relief in the affected area.
Joint injections are performed in our state-of-the-art facility and are typically done as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you can go home the same day. The procedure is relatively quick and generally well-tolerated, and many patients experience significant pain relief as a result.
There are several different types of joint injections available, each designed to target specific aspects of joint pain. Some of the most common types of joint injections include:
Cortisone injections: Cortisone injections are used to reduce inflammation and provide pain relief in a specific joint. They are often used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Hyaluronic acid injections: Hyaluronic acid injections are used to improve joint function and reduce pain. They are often used to treat knee pain and other conditions related to joint wear and tear.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections: PRP injections are used to promote healing and reduce inflammation in the affected joint. They are often used to treat conditions such as tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis.
Joint injections may be a valuable option for individuals who are experiencing chronic joint pain and have not found relief through other forms of treatment. They may be especially beneficial for those who have conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and other joint-related conditions.
