The joints are problem areas of the body that degenerate due to age and genetics. They are also prone to injury. Pain is the most common symptom one may experience in the peripheral areas, such as the hips, knees and shoulders as well as in the joints of the arms and legs, down to the hands and feet. Arthritis or inflammation of the joints is one of the most common causes of peripheral joint pain.
To resolve pain, stiffness and swelling in these areas, a peripheral joint injection may be administered by your doctor. This is usually a type of steroid injected into the affected joint to relieve the pain and inflammation. A local anesthetic may be used to numb the area of the injection. The procedure can entail using fluoroscopy (a live X-ray) or ultrasound guidance to monitor the path of the needle to the target area. Then, your doctor will inject an anti-inflammatory medication called cortisone directly into the joint.
A peripheral joint injection is usually an outpatient procedure that will only take 15 to 30 minutes to administer. After the injection, you will be observed briefly before discharge to ensure that there are no complications or adverse reactions.
Advanced Sports & Spine provides quality yet affordable peripheral joint injections. This is a holistic and minimally invasive procedure that reduces if not eliminates pain and discomfort in the peripheral regions, such as the shoulders, hips, and knees.
A peripheral joint injection consists of cortisone and an anesthetic that is injected into the affected joint. This treatment is therapeutic in nature as it manages the pain experienced by the patient and gives them comfort almost immediately. The source of the pain can be determined quite quickly as the peripheral joints can be easily located, unlike other areas of pain.
This treatment is a minor medical procedure proven to be safe and effective. It can be conducted outside a surgery room, at your doctor’s office. If you experience recurring or chronic joint pains, it would be best to consult a trusted physician to determine if a peripheral joint injection is the right treatment for you.
Advanced Sports & Spine is a non-facility fees office that ensures exceptional treatment at affordable prices.

This ranges from hundreds if not thousands of dollars depending on the treatment.
