Therapeutic Joint Injections
Strengthen Your Joints, Do What You Love
Therapeutic injections are a common treatment for those who have injured their joints. They reduce inflammation and pain in the joint. Injections reduce swelling and inflammation. Injections are not a cure for joint damage, but they can help to improve function and reduce pain. In conjunction with physical therapy, injections can be an effective treatment for joint pain.
Stay Active, Stay Healthy, Participate in Life
One of the primary functions of a healthy joint is to allow bones to move smoothly over each other. This helps reduce the amount of wear and tear on the joint, which can help prolong the life of the joint. Additionally, a healthy joint can help improve mobility and independence in older adults. A healthy joint allows an individual to participate in activities they enjoy and live a more active lifestyle. A healthy joint can also help improve the overall quality of life for older adults.
Untreated Joint Pain Causes More Than Discomfort
Joint pain can vary in severity and can range from mild to debilitating. In some cases, joint pain can make it difficult to perform everyday activities. Joint pain can also cause fatigue and sleeplessness. Joint pain can significantly reduce the quality of life for those who experience it. It is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing significant joint pain, as there may be a underlying cause that requires treatment. There are a variety of treatments available for those who experience joint pain, and finding the right treatment can help reduce the severity of the pain.
