Intra-Articular Joint Injections

An intra-articular injection is an injection administered directly into a joint. The medication is actually injected into the joint space for the purpose of relieving joint pain. Corticosteroids are injected into painful joints to relieve joint pain.

Intra-articular steroid injections work by decreasing inflammation. By reducing inflammatory mediators, pain is decreased too. Joint injections can have great benefits in a patient’s recovery. The use of corticosteroid injections can be extremely useful in treating musculoskeletal and joint injuries as well as pain. Injections are most effective when combined with rehabilitation measures.
