Injections Q & A

What are injections?

All American Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute takes a conservative approach to care and offers many non-surgical treatments to ease pain and promote healing. 

This includes the use of various injections to address your orthopedic needs and conditions. 

What types of injections are there?

There are many types of injections the experts at All American Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute use to ease pain and help you get back to doing the things you love. 

Cortisone injections

Cortisone injections reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain. These injections are usually the first line of defense for treating joint pain conditions like arthritis when oral medications no longer provide lasting relief. 

Hyaluronic acid injections

The orthopedic physicians at All American Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute may recommend hyaluronic acid injections to improve joint mobility and reduce pain for those suffering from arthritis. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that uses your body’s natural repair process to stimulate the healing of your diseased or damaged tissue. The team may recommend PRP injections to support healing of a sports injury or repair joint damage from arthritis. 

Am I a candidate for injections?

The team at All American Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute conducts comprehensive evaluations when you come in for care to determine the best treatment options for you.

They may consider you a candidate for injections if less invasive treatments no longer provide long-term relief from your pain or your pain impedes other treatments, like physical therapy. 

All American Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute may use injections to treat:

  • Arthritis
  • Knee pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sports injuries

They may also recommend PRP injections following your orthopedic surgery to support your body’s healing process. 

What happens during injections?

The team at All American Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Institute develops an individual injection treatment plan based on your diagnosis, the type of injection you need, and your overall health. They use ultrasound-guided imaging during your injection to ensure proper placement.

In most cases, there’s no downtime following injections. Your provider gives you specific post-treatment instructions that best fit your needs. 

They may also recommend a series of injections so you gain the most benefits.
