Are Joint Pain Injections Right for Me?

If you are experiencing joint pain in your upper or lower extremities, have yet to find relief through traditional treatments, or are in search of an alternative to surgery and medications for treating your pain, you may be a candidate for joint injections at Vanguard Sport & Spine.

Before considering joint injections, we conduct thorough medical evaluations to understand the underlying causes of your pain. This comprehensive assessment ensures that we recommend the most appropriate and effective treatment plan for your specific condition.

Eligibility for joint injections is determined based on these evaluations and diagnoses. Not all cases of joint pain are suitable for injection therapy. For instance, patients with certain medical conditions or those whose joint pain stems from specific causes may not be ideal candidates.

Our team at Vanguard Spine and Sport is committed to ensuring that the treatment we propose aligns with your overall health status and treatment goals. We consider factors like the severity and duration of your pain, your medical history, and any previous treatments you’ve undergone.

If it is determined that you are a candidate for joint injections, our team will guide you through the process, explaining the types of injections available and what you can expect during and after the procedure. We prioritize patient education and involvement in treatment decisions, ensuring that you are fully informed and comfortable with your care plan.

Joint Pain Injections: What to Expect

During your first appointment, our conservative pain management team at Vanguard Spine and Sport will complete a thorough evaluation of your current health and medical history and may recommend joint pain injections, which we perform in our state-of-the-art pain clinics in Houston, TX.

The injection procedure itself is conducted in a sterile environment, utilizing local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. This process is quick and focuses specifically on the affected joint to provide targeted pain relief. Following the joint pain injection, you’ll begin to experience either immediate or gradual pain relief, depending on the type of injection administered.

Our physicians will keep you informed about your treatment and give you a set of aftercare instructions to aid in recovery. Depending on the outcome, these injections may become a part of a comprehensive, long-term conservative pain management strategy.
