Joint Injections in Marble Falls
Quick and Long-Term Relief for Joint Pain
Shaw Pain Clinic offers joint injections as part of our medical services in Marble Falls. These nonsurgical solutions can reduce joint pains in various parts of the body. Problems in the joint itself or the surrounding bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves, are generally responsible for this type of pain. Joint injections can help with pain management for conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, or degenerative arthritis.
Our team will work with you to determine what type of joint injections is appropriate for your situation. We always evaluate your medical history and current health and our staff members are available to answer any questions you may have about the procedure. Our goal is to help you improve your range of motion and engage in physical therapy or day-to-day activities that were previously too challenging.
We schedule appointments Monday through Thursday from 8am to 5pm, and on Friday until 12pm. If you are interested in payment plans, let our staff know. We also speak English and Spanish for your convenience.
Types of Joint Injections
You can expect a joint injection appointment to last 30 to 60 minutes, including observation time after the procedure. We use x-ray imaging and contrast dyes to guide us. We also apply a topical anesthetic on the skin where we will perform the injection to minimize your discomfort.
Several types of joint injections are available to treat chronic pain. Our thorough evaluation helps us determine which one(s) can help your specific situation.
Common joint injections include:
- Corticosteroid injections: they combine steroid medication and an anesthetic to reduce inflammation and pain.
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections: they use the individual’s blood to boost their body’s natural healing capabilities for healthier cartilages and tissues in the treated joint.
- Hyaluronic acid injections: they usually help with knee pain when corticosteroid injections have been unsuccessful. They enhance the joint lubrication to improve its function.
How Do Joint Injections Work?
Joint injections can help people of all ages and are effective nonsurgical treatments for a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. They can also work along with other medical care such as physical therapy or topical medications.
You do not need to do anything special to prepare for joint injections and you can go home after a brief observation period following the procedure. You can resume your normal activities the day after. You will experience pain relief within a week, and it can last up to several months depending on the type of injection you have received and what condition it is treating.
