Arthritis Center Treatments Available
Large and small joint injections
By injecting anti-inflammatory medications into a particular area of inflammation, very high concentrations of the medication can be given while keeping potential side-effects to a minimum. Examples of conditions for which local anti-inflammatory medication injections are used include:
Trigger finger limits finger movement. When you try to straighten your finger, it will lock or catch before popping out straight. When rest and NSAIDs fail to help, the doctor may choose to inject a corticosteroid — a powerful anti-inflammatory medication — into the irritated tendon.
Arthritis and Back Pain
Between vertebrae are small joints that help your spine move. One of the many causes of pain in your spine could be from your facet joints. The procedure of injecting a local anesthetic and an anti-inflammatory drug into your facet joint could relieve you of your upper, mid or lower back pain. Fluoroscopy is often used to assist the doctor in precisely locating the injection so that the medication reaches the appropriate spot and only the appropriate spot.
Peripheral nerve block
Trigger point injections
