Relieving Pain Through Joint Injection Therapy

If you are living with joint pain, you know just how debilitating it can be. Everyday activities that used to be simple may now be a challenge. But what if there was a treatment option that could help reduce or even eliminate your joint pain?

Joint injection therapy is a treatment option that may be able to do just that. In this blog, the Urgentology Care team will explain what joint injection therapy is, how it works, and its many benefits!

What is Joint Injection Therapy?

Joint injection therapy is a treatment option that can be used to help relieve joint pain. The therapy involves injecting medication into the joint, which can help to reduce inflammation and pain. Joint injection therapy is often used as a last resort after other treatment options, such as physical therapy and medications, have failed to provide relief.

Some of the most common injection sites include:

  • Wrists
  • Knees
  • Feet
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders

The needle used is very thin, so the injections are usually not painful. However, you may feel a brief sting when the needle enters the skin.

The injection usually takes less than 15 minutes to complete. You may be asked to stay at the doctor's office for a short period of time after the injection so that they can monitor you for any side effects.

The Benefits of Joint Injection Therapy

There are many benefits associated with joint injection therapy, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • Improved mobility
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Improved quality of life

Joint injection therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for many people living with joint pain.
