Joint Injections Q & A

What are the different types of joint injections?

The team at White Integrated Health Clinics creates a customized joint injection treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Depending on your condition, they may recommend the following joint injections:

Sacroiliac joint injections

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is a common cause of low back pain and sciatica that’s difficult to diagnose.

The team at White Integrated Health Clinics uses sacroiliac joint injections both diagnostically, to determine whether that joint is the source of pain, and therapeutically, to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. 

Regenerative Joint Injections

Regenerative Cell treatments are rapidly becoming the new and most innovative approach to healing degenerative and arthritic joints. No longer is joint replacement surgery the only option. White Integrated Health Clinics is now offering painless Regenerative Cell Injections. These remarkable treatments can repair tissue in the body by pinpointing the impaired areas and healing them by regenerating new cells and tissue. It works with your body's natural ability to heal itself and can restore degenerated tissue to a healthier state.

Protein-Rich Plasma Joint Injections

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) is a solution that contains a much higher concentration of platelets than what’s typically found in your blood. Though platelets are best known for their role in forming blood clots, they’ve gained recognition as an effective orthopedic treatment due to the growth factors they contain.

Growth factors are proteins that are critical to your body’s natural healing process. Because PRP contains more platelets, it also has 5-10 times more growth factors than normal blood.

Hyaluronic Acid Joint Injections

An injection of Hyaluronic Acid into degenerative knee joints could help decrease pain and stiffness you are experiencing, and increased range of motion. Synovial fluid within the knee joint helps to maintain lubrication of the joint and enable smooth functioning of those joints. This fluid usually thins when osteoarthritis is present. Hyaluronic Acid is injected, when indicated, to help lubricate or cushion the joint. It is typically recommended that injections occur once a week for 5 weeks, with a post-injection protocol to increase efficacy of those injections.

What do joint injections treat?

The team at White Integrated Health Clinics uses joint injections to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Chronic joint pain
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Leg pain
  • Arm pain
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Wrist pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain

Joint injections are a minimally invasive approach to pain management that may prolong or eliminate the need for surgery.

What should I expect from a joint injection procedure?

The team at White Integrated Health Clinics performs joint injections as an outpatient procedure right in their office. 

The joint injection may contain an anti-inflammatory steroid, a local anesthetic, or a combination of both. If the injection is for diagnostic purposes, an absence of pain following the injection can confirm the specific location as the origin of your pain

Joint injections may provide relief for several months. Using physical therapies and cold laser therapy along with the joint injections is the key to lasting pain relief.
