Patients seek the assistance of Peak Health and Wellness to bring back function, exercise, the range of motion, and resume daily activities.
Joint injections not only provide immediate pain relief but also have anti-inflammatory properties.
An ultrasound machine is used to visualize the affected joint. After proper sterilization, a needle is placed into the joint under a live ultrasound or x-ray guidance. A steroid and local anesthetic are then injected into the joint to help decrease pain and inflammation of the joint.
