Intra-Articular Joint Injections at Pain Management Services
An intra-articular injection involves administering medication directly into a joint to relieve pain. This approach is generally used when more conservative treatments have proven ineffective. Before an intra-articular injection many patients have undergone the following treatments:
- Oral pain relievers
- Physical Therapy
Most often for intra-articular injections the doctor will use corticosteroids. This medication works to reduce inflammation.
Potential complications are possible with any medical treatment. The most common complications experienced by those receiving intra-articular injections are local needle pain. This treatment is extremely safe and serious side effects are very rare.
