Joint Injections Q&A

What are joint injections?

Joint injections are treatments the team at Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center uses to diagnose and treat pain conditions that involve a joint. These injections contain a local anesthetic that numbs the area and a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation.

 

Joints are the point where two or more bones meet. Though some joints are immobile, most joints move, giving you the ability to stand up, walk, lift, and write. Unfortunately, the structure and function of your joints make them susceptible to injuries and diseases that cause pain.

 

Joint injections can confirm that your joint is the source of your pain and provide relief.

Am I a candidate for joint injections?

The pain management team at Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center determines if you’re a candidate for joint injections after a consultation. 

 

The team can inject almost any joint in the body, including the knees, shoulders, hips, ankles, and spine. During your consultation, your pain management provider reviews your symptoms, medical history, and daily routine.

 

They examine the area of the body causing your pain and may request X-rays to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. 

 

The team may recommend the diagnostic or therapeutic interventional joint injection if you have joint pain that affects mobility.

What happens during joint injections?

The pain management experts at Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center perform joint injections at the state-of-the-art procedure center. After you change into an exam gown, your provider has you sit or lie on the procedure table and cleans your skin with an antiseptic agent.

 

They may first inject a local anesthetic to reduce pain during your joint injection. Then, using X-ray-guided imaging, your provider places the needle into the painful joint and injects the medication.

 

You go to the recovery area following your joint injection for monitoring, and then the team sends you home.

What can I expect after joint injections?

Joint injections may not provide pain relief right away. It may take up to three days before you start feeling improvements in your discomfort.

 

The team might repeat the joint injection a second time if you didn’t get pain relief from the first injection. Joint injections may help control pain for weeks or months and can be repeated up to three times a year.
