Joint Injections Q&A

Joint injections: Solution for Pain Relief and Inflammation

A joint injection is a nonsurgical procedure to inject medication into a damaged, painful, and stiff joint. Joint injections can provide relief and improve your physical function for weeks or even months. 

This service might be part of your pain management plan at InnovateMed Medical Group. If you’ve tried the most conservative treatments without relief, the team might recommend joint injections alongside osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). 

Possible Conditions That Would Need Joint Injections

Some of the most common reasons to have joint injections include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout 
  • Bursitis
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Facet joint syndrome

Our team provides acute pain care to manage your pain effectively and help you recover as quickly as possible. Acute pain conditions that can benefit from joint injections include:

  • Joint sprains or strains
  • Infectious arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Lupus arthritis
  • Reactive arthritis
  • Pseudogout
  • Septic arthritis
  • Sarcoidosis arthritis
  • Hemarthrosis (bleeding into a joint)
  • Calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPPD)
  • Lyme arthritis (caused by Lyme disease)

Types of joint injections


Corticosteroid injections combat inflammation and pain caused by conditions like osteoarthritis and bursitis.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a thick natural substance that lubricates joints, improves shock absorption, and helps you move comfortably again if you have osteoarthritis. 

The type of injection needed depends on your condition, symptoms, and goals for recovery. 

Joint injections and Other Services for optimal results

Joint injections are most often recommended for larger joints like the hips and knees, but even the smallest joints in the body, like the finger and toe joints and the spinal facet joints, may benefit from injections. 

We take an osteopathic approach to medicine. The team often recommends osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), hands-on adjustments that relieve problems and optimize the function of your musculoskeletal and nervous systems. 

A combination of OMT and joint injections offers great relief for many patients with chronic joint pain while also enabling a return to an active life.

InnovateMed Medical Group provides convenient joint injections in the office, and you can even schedule same-day appointments for immediate pain relief. If your joints feel swollen, creaky, and painful, don’t wait to get help. Book your appointment online or call the Orange office now.
