Peripheral Joint Injections
Peripheral joints include all the joints not located in the spine. Your various joints throughout the body allow for movement, dexterity and flexibility, connecting bones that move in different directions. All joints can become affected by injury, disease or degenerative conditions, causing friction, pain and dysfunction. Ospina Medical offers peripheral joint injections at our clinic in New York City that can reduce joint pain and improve mobility.
Joints are comprised of ligaments, bone, cartilage and tendons that create a movable component between bones. Injuries can cause scar tissue and damage to joints. Repetitive motion can cause wear and tear to joint materials. These issues can lead to inflammation in the joints, or arthritis, as well as bone spurs, damaged tendons, ligament issues and other distress. Inflammation and pain can limit the function of peripheral joints, including:
When these important joints are swollen and in pain, there are options for relief without invasive surgery. We offer peripheral joint injections that can reduce inflammation and slow down degeneration for pain relief.
Wrist, Ankle and Shoulder Joint Pain Relief
All joints can suffer from osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions. We offer effective injection therapy options that can provide pain relief and may slow deterioration of the joints. Steroid injections reduce inflammation and relieve pain. We also offer interventional orthopedic therapies that may slow the progression of some types of joint disorders. All injection therapy is minimally-invasive, with little to no downtime after the procedure.
