Joint Injections

For individuals with joint pain, whether due to arthritis, injury, or degeneration, steroid nerve blocks within affected regions may be a successful treatment option. Often, these conditions are due to irritation within the joint and, therefore, the application of steroids, which have anti-inflammatory properties, into the affected regions can minimize pain. After an initial, diagnostic treatment to determine if the pain originates from the joint, additional treatments may be considered. Many patients require repeat nerve blocks to provide sustained relief.

Nerve blocks can be performed in the following areas:

  • Facet joints of the spine
  • Sacroiliac joint and coccyx
  • Hip joint
  • Shoulder, elbow, and hand
  • Knee, ankle and foot
