What are joint injections?

Joint injections contain substances that help your joints heal, reduce inflammation, and diminish pain associated with injuries and age-related wear-and-tear. Greenbrook Medical offers a variety of joint injections based on your unique needs to maximize joint functioning and help you live your best life.

What are the symptoms of joint problems?

Joint pain could appear as:

  • Sharp pain
  • Dull aching
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Limited mobility
  • Crunching or popping sounds

Your pain could be mild or severe and crippling. It may go away on its own over time or persist long-term without medical intervention.

What are the risk factors for joint damage?

Joint pain might occur for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Age-related wear-and-tear
  • Older age
  • Joint inflammation
  • Infections

The cause of joint pain isn’t always clear. Doctors at Greenbrook Medical find its root cause to offer the most appropriate treatment.

Are joint injections right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for joint injections at Greenbrook Medical, your doctor checks your vital signs, examines your joints, and reviews your medical history and symptoms. They may recommend undergoing blood tests, X-rays, ultrasounds, MRIs, CT scans, or other imaging procedures.

Greenbrook Medical providers personalize each joint pain treatment to match your needs. Lifestyle changes, dietary supplements, and surgery are other treatment options for joint problems.

What should I expect during joint injections?

During joint injections, your provider gently injections substances into painful joints at targeted areas. They might recommend:

Corticosteroid injections

Corticosteroids reduce inflammation in your joints, thereby reducing pain.

Precision medicine injections

Stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections enhance your body’s natural ability to generate new cells and heal.

Hyaluronic acid injections

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that your body produces to keep the joints lubricated. Hyaluronic injections can improve range of motion. 

Joint injection procedures are fast and painless. You may need multiple injections spaced apart over time to ensure the most effective relief from joint pain.
