Joint Injections

Joints are where two bones surrounded by a joint capsule move against each other. Joints are found throughout the body, including knees, arms, legs, feet, fingers and toes. There are instances where joint injections are most effective in providing quick pain relief without the use of painkillers or medication.  Our joint injections consist of local anesthetics and natural medications designed to reduce inflammation in the tissues of the joint space.

Most patients start experiencing relief within a few hours of receiving an injection.

We incorporate joint injections as part of an overall comprehensive treatment plan, which often includes additional therapies.  We will evaluate your condition to determine if you are a candidate for joint injections.  Your doctor will then discuss the procedure and its benefits with you in detail.

It is important to note that joint injections offer a quick but temporary relief for pain.  Some people experience pain relief for several weeks, although results differ with each individual.  Joint injections should be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the root cause of pain.

- “For 20+ years I’ve had severe knee pain after having a 14 year Judo career and 30+ years working as a plumber kneeling on concrete every day. Since coming to Advantage Healthcare I’ve started receiving Hyalgan injections for both of my knees as well as doing physical therapy and getting adjustments. I now feel considerably better and am able to walk once again, at 52 years old I couldn’t and now I can! The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional from the time you walk in the door until you leave as well as on the phone if you call. It really shows that they care about you. I’m really glad that I’ve found them I drive 3 hours there and back from North Carolina because of how good they are.” -J. Cooper ...more
