Joint Injections in Bellingham, WA
When the cartilage covering the ends of bones wears down, the bones rub together, causing joint pain. Joint injections reduce pain and inflammation by thickening the liquid lining between the bones, preventing them from rubbing together.
Joint injections are ideal for people who have joint inflammation but have not responded to other treatments. They are most effective when used in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy. The duration of relief from joint injections can range from days to years.
