A joint injection is a procedure used to treat inflammatory joint conditions, such as psoriatic arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and sometimes osteoarthritis. Joint injections are offered at Cornerstone Wellness Centers by medical professionals.
A hypodermic needle is used to inject the affected joint(s), where it inserts a dose of an anti-inflammatory agent. Some of the most common agents are Hyaluronic acid, Corticosteroids, and Viscosity which are sometimes used to replace the bursa fluids in your body. The same technique can be used to extract excess fluids from the joints.
