Joint Injections Q & A

What are joint injections?

Joint injections are a treatment for joint pain. Joints form the connection between two or more bones. Most of the joints in your body support its mobility, allowing you to stand, walk, and lift. Joint pain can make it difficult to manage your daily routine.

Examples of joint injections include:

Steroid injections

Steroid injections contain a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic that reduces joint pain and inflammation. 


Viscosupplementation is a gel-like injection that lubricates the joints. This type of joint injection benefits people with osteoarthritis.

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections 

PRF and PRP injections enhance your body’s natural healing process. These injections are made from a sample of your blood and have a high concentration of the elements (platelets) your body uses for healing.

Fiamo Aesthetics offers a wide range of integrative services that benefit their diverse community. The practice offers joint injections to help people experiencing joint pain get relief.

Who needs joint injections?

If you have joint pain from an injury or degenerative condition, you might benefit from joint injections at Fiamo Aesthetics. Fiamo provides joint injections to assist pain management.

Some of the conditions that benefit from joint injections include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Ankle sprain
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear

If you have joint pain that’s not improving with conservative care, like oral medications and physical therapy, Fiamo Aesthetics can help.

What happens during joint injections?

Fiamo customizes your joint injection treatment plan and reviews the details with you. He cleans the skin with an antiseptic agent and injects a local anesthetic to numb the area. For people getting PRF and PRP injections, Fiamo takes a sample of blood to create the healing product.

Then, he injects the medication into the joint. Fiamo may use fluoroscopic imaging during your injection to ensure accurate placement of the needle and the medication. 

What happens after joint injections?

Fiamo has you remain at the office for a short period following your joint injection to monitor for side effects. Then, he sends you home. 

Results following joint injections vary and depend on the type of injection. Fiamo schedules follow-up visits to monitor your pain and adjust your plan. If the treatment provides relief, he may recommend additional joint injections.
