Large and Small Joint Injections
Large and small joint injections
Large and small joint injections a joint injection (intra-articular injection) is a procedure used in the treatment of inflammatory joint conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, tendinitis, bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and occasionally osteoarthritis. The medication of choice is usually a corticosteroid. The corticosteroid has the ability to reduce inflammation and provide relief from pain without the use of continued usage of pain medication. The injections are quick and the results are often seen quickly as well and with low risk of significant side effects. The overall goal of small and large joint injections is to relieve pain and improve function.
In cases involving osteoarthritis of the knee, we may suggest using a Hyaluronan derivative such as Synvisc or Hyalgan. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance naturally present in the body, especially in high concentrations in the joints. The fluid in the knee is called synovial fluid, and it helps cushion, lubricate, and protect the knee. In patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, the synovial fluid becomes thinner and less able to function at an optimal level.
