Chronic pain can have a huge impact on both your physical and emotional life. If traditional medical treatments prove ineffective, it can be discouraging. Many who suffer from chronic pain hope to find drug-free or alternative pain management solutions. At Precision Health and Wellness in Middletown DE, we have been providing our patients with natural and effective pain management solutions for many years. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine how joint injections will benefit you.
What Are Joint Injections?
Joint injections are medications or combinations of medications that can be injected directly into inflamed joints. These medications include supplements, anesthetics, or steroids. These injections help to lubricate the joints and relieve inflammation. Some joint injections have been reported to provide up to six months of relief. This type of treatment can be used in the shoulders, hips, knees, and other joints. In some cases, these injections can be used to treat tendon pain or pain located in the bursa.
Spine Disorders - Disorders of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine can cause great pain and discomfort. Injections, such as epidural steroid injections, can bring relief for many different spinal disorders.
Arthritis - Arthritis is a condition in which joints become inflamed and painful. This condition can affect the shoulders, knees, fingers, wrists, and other joints.
Joint injections are preferred over oral medications for most patients. Oral medications must make their way around the entire body before they can be effective in relieving pain in the desired area. This means that the medication will pass through your liver and other organs, which can cause problems over time. Joint injections are delivered straight to the painful joint, and bypass the rest of the body, making this a safer alternative treatment.
Are Joint Injections Good for Everyone?
When you meet with our chiropractor, we will be able to tell you whether or not joint injections are the correct treatment option for you. Chiropractic care combines different types of treatment to deliver effective pain relief naturally. Joint injections are often combined with other traditional forms of chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments, massage therapy, hot/cold therapy, and stretching and strengthening exercises can all be used to help the body deal with painful, inflamed joints.
