If you have chronic joint pain or facet joint pain, you know how debilitating it can truly be. Joints can become painful due to arthritis, an injury, or mechanical stress to wherever your pain is located, such as your back. At Advanced Wellness, we offer a variety of services in order to help our patients who suffer with joint pain or who need gout treatment or rheumatoid arthritis treatment in a holistic manner. Whether it’s pain in your neck, upper back or lower back joints, don’t let this pain continue to cripple and impact your quality of life. Let us help relieve your pain with our alternative treatments.
Corticosteroids: Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment & Joint Discomfort Relief
We use corticosteroids, an anti-inflammatory injection made up of anti-inflammatory agents to help relieve inflammation and withdraw excess fluid from the painful joint. Shoulders, elbows, hips and knees are joints that are commonly injected. An anti-inflammatory injection helps to anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain. When this happens, you:
- Experience pain relief
- Have reduced inflammation and reduce your chance of worsening or repeating the injury
- Can participate in physical therapy more freely, which will help you to rehabilitate completely
These injections can help treat conditions such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Psoriatic arthritis
