Non-surgical Joint and Muscle procedures
Joint injections are non-surgical procedures that apply a combination of anesthetic and corticosteroid directly to damaged joint tissue. This can provide you with the pain relief you need to improve range of motion.
Joint injections can be applied to any joint - knees, shoulders, elbows, and wrists. Although not a permanent solution to joint pain, it can provide long-term relief that will last for several months.
Trigger point injection (TPI) may be an option for treating pain in some patients. TPI is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. Many times, such knots can be felt under the skin.
Trigger points may irritate the nerves around them, and cause referred pain, or pain that is felt in another part of the body.
