Injectable Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication injected directly into joints such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and ankles to decrease inflammation, which can subsequently decrease joint pain for several weeks.
Viscosupplementation Therapy is a series of injections often used to treat people with knee arthritis who are trying to delay surgery or are not candidates for knee replacement surgery. A solution of hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the knee joint to restore the cushioning and lubricating properties of normal joint fluid. Learn more about viscosupplementation therapy.
