Joint pain is disruptive and potentially debilitating. If you’re among the millions of men and women who suffer from such pain, injections can regenerate tissue, increase lubrication, and prevent the need for surgery. As a board-certified chiropractor, Dr. Michael Osborne is proud to offer joint injections to patients in Palm Coast, Daytona Beach, and Orange City, Florida. To make an appointment with Dr. Osborne, please contact Coastal Healthcare Partners today.
Joint injections are a minimally-invasive treatment option available to patients with joint injuries, pain, and arthritis. The purpose of these injections is to promote healing in the joint, increase lubrication, and reduce pain for the patient.
Coastal Healthcare Partners offers standard joint injections, and viscosupplementation to patients with joint problems.
The most basic joint injections contain steroids, anesthetics, or a combination of the two medications. The purpose of these injections is to bring down inflammation or block pain within the joint.
Viscosupplementation involves injecting a lubricating fluid into the joint to improve joint mobility and reduce pain. This type of joint injection is most often used for patients with arthritis.
Each of the joint injection options available from Coastal Healthcare Partners offers different advantages. The team at Coastal Healthcare Partners can tell you which of these injections is most likely to help you. In some cases, patients may benefit from more than one type of joint injection.
Joint injections are relatively safe for patients. Because Dr. Osborne must break the skin during a joint injection, there’s a small risk of bleeding and/or infection. However, these complications are rare. After the procedure, you may feel a little sore, but most patients recover quickly.
Joint injections are effective for many patients, but every patient is different. Dr. Osborne can give you a better idea of the results you can expect from joint injections based on the specifics of your condition.
Joint injections can be administered safely with most of the other treatment options available from Coastal Healthcare Partners. In fact, Dr. Osborne often recommends joint injections as part of a comprehensive treatment program that includes other modalities, such as chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy.
