What Are Peripheral Joint Injections?

Pain is Never a Normal Occurrence

Dr. Enrique Umpierre heads up the Central Florida Pain & Rehabilitation Clinic in Winter Park, FL, and wants those with chronic pain to know that pain is never normal and is certainly not something that always happens as we age. Peripheral Joint Injections can help decrease pain.

There is an endless list of underlying health problems that exacerbate chronic pain. A few examples are,

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Degenerative Joint Disease

Our doctor offers residents of Winter Park and surrounding areas a wide variety of treatments that can control pain. One such chronic pain treatment option is called Peripheral Joint Injections.

What are Peripheral Joint Injections?

Dr. Umpierre at the Central Florida Pain & Rehabilitation Clinic in Winter Park, FL, can explain precisely what Peripheral Joint Injections are and how they can decrease or eliminate pain.

Chronic pain robs people of their independence and the ability to work, enjoy life and have fun. Chronic pain throws a halt to social, economic, and spiritual activities. No person is the same regarding the level of pain they suffer, the location of the pain, or the reason for the pain. Thus, all patients have a unique care plan.

  • Treatments for pain do not work the same for everyone, and healing times may vary.
  • The doctor creates an individualized care plan unique to that person.¬†

Injections are one of many treatments that may help you with chronic or acute pain and increase your quality of life by injecting fluid into a specific joint such as a knee, hip, shoulder, wrist, or other. Sometimes the doctor adds a numbing medicine to the injection to enhance comfort.

A specific joint may be inflamed, swollen, and painful. As a result, the doctor may recommend a steroid injection into the joint. Injections are meant to help cushion a joint when the natural cushioning is gone due to wear on the joint.

Patients commonly come to us for injections into their ankles, shoulders, elbows, hips, or knees. Decreased pain from these injections lasts a few weeks to several months.
