Injection-Based Procedures for Reducing Muscle Spasms & Joint Pain
Non-invasive & fast ways to help your joints get our of pain.
If you're dealing with knee, shoulder, or other joint pain, there are a variety of treatment options to help you get out of pain and avoid or prolong needing surgery. These are short, in-office treatments that can help you to start feeling better virtually right away. Two types that we provide at out office are:
A. Trigger Point Injections. Trigger points are tight areas, or “knots” within muscle tissue that can cause pain to radiate to other parts of the body. Normally, they occur either within the muscle itself or within the surrounding fascia, and often are very painful. Trigger point injections uses a small amount of anesthetic fluid to minimize the pain of these points while the needle helps to “unlock” the muscle from its triggered state.
B. Viscosupplementation is a procedure in which a thick, gel-like substance is injected into a joint (intra-articular), most commonly to treat arthritis pain. These substances, known as hyaluronates (hyaluronic acid and hylan), improve the lubricating properties of the natural fluid in the joint (synovial fluid), reduce joint pain, improve mobility, and provide a higher and more comfortable level of activity. It is essentially like “an oil change for your joints.” This is sometimes referred to as the “rooster injection” or the “chicken injection”, as some products are derived from a rooster’s comb.
