Cortisone Injections

Cortisone Injections are a common treatment for Arthritis. They can relieve pain and inflammation and are commonly injected into joints such as ankles, elbows, knees, wrists, spines or shoulders. When medication and physical therapy haven’t had an effect, your doctor may suggest Cortisone Injections to manage your condition. Cortisone Injections should be used with caution as frequent use is not recommended. Talk to your doctor to find out if you will benefit from Cortisone Injections or if there are other alternatives that you could opt for.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has been gaining prominence as a viable treatment for Arthritis. When treating osteoarthritis with PRP, your doctor will inject PRP into the affected joint to reduce pain, improve joint function and slow or repair cartilage damage. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood. The blood is drawn from the patient and processed to obtain PRP.

Depending on your specific condition, your doctor will determine the best course of action for you when it comes to treating and managing your arthritis.
