Joint Injections not only provide immediate pain relief but also have anti-inflammatory properties.

An ultrasound machine is used to visualize the affected joint. After proper sterilization, a needle is placed into the joint under a live ultrasound or x-ray guidance. A steroid and local anesthetic are then injected into the joint to help decrease pain and inflammation of the joint. This outpatient procedure is attractive to many patients because it can be quickly performed in one of our three offices.

Integrated Pain Consultants offers many types of joint injections including:

Many of our patients have reported a dramatic reduction of pain and have been able to return to their normal activities.

Dr. Seth tried several different procedures, and I am better. I trust him and his staff they are all professional and fun. Dr. Seth helped me avoid a second surgery. I was always comfortable and felt like he and his staff genuinely cared about me and wanted to see me get well. Thanks again!!!
