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.

- “When I first came into Advantage Healthcare of Charleston I had very bad back and leg pain to where I was bed bound. I have now been receiving chiropractic adjustments, therapies, along with injections from them. Since I started all of my treatments I feel wonderful! I’m able to get out of bed and do stuff, my mood has changed and I am able to live instead of just exist.” -B. Leeson ...more
- “Before I found Advantage Healthcare I had extreme pain in both of my knees, very stiff shoulders and joints, trouble walking, and was short of breath. When I first started on with them they did x-ray’s to see what was going on and the staff discussed what they’d be able to do to assist my healing. They have since then started giving me adjustments, physical therapy, injections for my back and knees. They’ve also given me a tens unit and knee brace. Every time I come in they check on me to see how my pain is doing. I now feel 110% better, my pain has went from serve to mild, my shoulder has loosened up, my left knee is no longer in pain, and my right knee has the brace so I’m walking 100% better. I would like to say that Dr. Gray and his staff are number 1! They all go out of their way to make sure your visit goes pleasant. When I first arrived at AHC I was heading for a wheelchair but not anymore, I feel like a new person. I won’t sugar coat the treatment one day it’s easy and others it’s not but if you follow through with your instructions you will see results; I can attest to that. Lastly I would like to tell you I feel so much better. If you’ve got problems go to AHC and get them checked out, you will end up feeling better; I know!" -E. Mizell ...more
