What Are Joint Injections?
Joint injections are administered to manage joint pain related to arthritis, inflammation, injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more. When less invasive options, like exercises and oral pain medication, don't do the trick, joint injections, including platelet-rich plasma joint therapy, can be a minimally invasive option often recommended before a costly and invasive procedure, like surgery. At Oasis Medical Center of Georgia, we offer these injections to help reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and increase the comfortable range of motion in the joint. If you are experiencing joint soreness, reach out to our team at our Dallas, GA location today.
How Are Joint Injections Performed?
Before having any injections performed, we will offer you a detailed exam and consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss your options and develop a better understanding of the procedure. During the joint injection procedure, our team will sanitize the injection site and use a sterile needle to insert the cortisone steroid solution into the targeted joints. Sometimes, advanced imaging techniques, like ultrasound and x-rays, are used to help identify the precise location the needle should be placed within the tissue. The process involves very little discomfort, and many patients begin to feel less joint pain after about 2 – 3 days with long-lasting relief ranging from a few weeks to a few months.
After an initial consultation and exam, our practitioners may recommend PRP therapy for joint pain. In that case, we will draw a small amount of blood from your arm and place it into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from it. Once the PRP is ready, we'll use a syringe to inject it into the joint causing you pain. This process can take anywhere from 45 – 90 minutes, depending on the number of joints you're receiving treatment for. Follow-up treatments may be necessary to maintain the pain-relieving benefits of the injections.
