What are Articulation Injections?
Articulation injections, often referred to as joint injections, are a therapeutic procedure where medication is directly delivered into a joint space. This minimally invasive approach aims to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve the overall function of the joint.
- Immediate Relief: Many patients experience relief shortly after the procedure, which can last for several weeks or even months.
- Reduced Inflammation: The medication delivered helps in reducing inflammation within the joint.
- Improved Mobility: By alleviating pain, many patients find it easier to move and engage in physical activity.
- Alternative to Surgery: For some, articulation injections can delay or even prevent the need for more invasive surgical procedures.
Our specialists recommend articulation injections for various conditions, including but not limited to:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Gout-related joint pain
