Joint pain refers to painful symptoms and discomfort in the joints of the hands, knees, hips, feet, or spine. Your joints might feel sore, stiff, or achy, and the pain might come and go. The pain might also be accompanied by burning sensations, throbbing sensations, or grinding sensations when you move certain parts of your body. Joint pain can severely affect your ability to perform daily activities, and it can be caused by numerous underlying conditions. We identify and treat joint pain with personalized orthopedic joint injections.
What is Joint Pain?
Causes of Joint Pain:
- Osteoarthritis — wear-and-tear of the cartilage tissues that cushion your bones
- Rheumatoid arthritis — swelling and pain in the joints because of chronic inflammation
- Gout — a collection of crystals from the body in the joints, especially in the big toe
- Bursitis — inflammation of the bursae sacs in the knees, shoulders, elbows, or hips
- Tendinitis — inflammation of the tendons that connect the bones to the muscles
- Viral infections that affect the joints in your body
- Severe injuries, sprains, fractures, and broken bones
Your Treatment Options
Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory medications injected into problematic joints to alleviate inflammation and reduce pain.
Viscosupplementation is the injection of hyaluronic acid into the inflamed knee joints to lubricate the cartilage and joints, allowing them to move without friction.
PRP is a serum derived from a small sample of your blood. It’s injected into the inflamed joints to facilitate natural tissue regeneration and alleviate pain.
Amniotic Membrane Injections
Amniotic membrane injections involve using amniotic fluid stem cells drawn from your body to heal damaged and injured tissues.
Exosomes are extracellular sacs that communicate with the surrounding cells. Injecting exosomes into the injured tissues stimulates cellular regeneration.
Wharton’s Jelly Injections
Wharton’s jelly is a substance drawn from the umbilical cord within the womb. It’s injected into the inflamed/damaged tissues to stimulate cellular regeneration and alleviate inflammation.
