Orthopaedic injections are utilized to deliver medication to a specific area of the body to assist in reducing or eliminating pain caused by inflammation. Injections may not completely eliminate all severe orthopaedic pain symptoms, be it immediately or permanently, but can serve to significantly aid in pain reduction allowing increased comfort and function with activities of daily living. The goal of injection therapy is to provide you with enough pain relief from orthopaedic problems such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or sports injury to help transition from inactivity to physical therapy. With increased mobility, our orthopaedic specialists can help you break the pain cycle that has been established through specialized exercises. Sometimes, anti-inflammatory injections can also serve as a diagnostic tool by helping to localize the source of the symptoms.
