The joints are responsible for facilitating our movements. When pain occurs in the joints, it soon becomes difficult and uncomfortable to use them. Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic offers intra-articular injections to help patients in Ocoee, Longwood and Orlando, FL, overcome joint pain.
What are Intra-articular Injections?
An intra-articular injection refers to any pain management technique that involves an injection directly into a joint. This term describes many of the joint injection treatments offered at Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic. Typically, these injections contain a local anesthetic and a steroid medication. When injected into a joint, they can soothe inflammation and provide long-lasting pain relief. Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic offers intra-articular injections to help patients find relief from pain and enjoy an improved range of motion and quality of life.
What is an Intra-articular Injection Used to Treat?
The intra-articular injection treatment is used to treat any pain that is caused by the joints. This includes chronic pain such as back pain, neck pain, arthritis and more. These conditions can arise from injury, disease or other conditions. The intra-articular injection soothes inflammation in the area while simultaneously providing long-lasting pain relief with the steroid medication.
What Can I Expect from an Intra-articular Injection?
During the intra-articular injection treatment, a small needle is inserted into the joint where pain is originating. We will ensure that you are adequately numbed for this process. Once the needle is in place, the local anesthetic and steroid medication is injected into the joint. The local anesthetic will provide immediate pain relief, although it will only last for a few hours. Pain may return briefly, but the steroid medication should take effect within a few days, producing the full results of treatment. You will need someone to drive you home after your procedure. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best approach for your intra-articular injection treatment and tell you what you can expect from your treatment.
