What are joint injections?
Joint injections are common treatments for injuries, swelling, and pain. The injections optimize your quality of life by improving musculoskeletal functioning in the joints, which are areas of your body that connect two bones. The injections are virtually painless and offer fast, highly effective, long-lasting results.
What are the benefits of joint injections?
When choosing joint injections at One Life Chiropractic, you can expect the following benefits:
- Less joint pain
- Reduced swelling
- Less stiffness
- Improved range of motion
- Reduced redness, warmth, and bruising
- Better mobility
Joint injections can relieve discomfort and help you stay active and live your best life. Such injections may help you avoid taking addictive pain medications or undergoing invasive procedures.
Are joint injections right for me?
The One Life Chiropractic specialists determine if you’re a candidate for joint injections after discussing your symptoms, medical history, lifestyle, treatment preferences, and desired results. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests, digital X-rays, or other imaging procedures to determine which injections are best for you.
Which joint injections are available?
One Life Chiropractic offers orthobiologics and other joint injections to speed up healing and reduce swelling and pain:
Trigger point injections
Trigger point injections are pain-reducing injections that target tense, tight muscle fibers.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
PRP uses platelets from your blood to stimulate healing and cell regeneration. Your provider takes a blood sample, spins it in a centrifuge, and injects it into painful or damaged joints.
Wharton’s jelly stem cells injections
Regentaive Labs Wharton’s jelly includes stem cells sourced from donated umbilical cord tissues. Like PRP, these injections stimulate new cell growth and optimize healing.
Hyaluronic acid injections
Hyaluronic acid injections increase joint lubrication to ease friction, reduce pain, and allow damaged joints to heal.
Corticosteroid Injections are medicines used to reduce joint swelling, stiffness, pain, and inflammation without invasive procedures.
What are the other holistic pain treatments?
One Life Chiropractic provides other natural treatments for joint pain and disability. Your specialist may recommend ice or heat packs, deep tissue laser therapy using photobiomodulation, massage, or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
Other options include the Graston Technique®, manual manipulation, knee and spinal decompression, dietary supplements, and additional holistic solutions. You may need more than one treatment to ensure superior results.
