There are many joints in the body, each one enabling motion and mobility. Joints are complex structures with several interworking parts that enable their function. When something goes wrong with one of these joints, either from an injury, disease or condition, mobility and range of motion can be negatively affected. Another common symptom of joint dysfunction is pain, which can either be constant or intermittent. Joint pain can also range in severity, with some cases being mild and barely noticeable, while others are debilitating and difficult to cope with.
How long do joint injections last?
The length of time that joint injections will provide alleviation depends on a number of factors, including the condition being treated, its severity, the patient’s overall health and age. Although every case is different, in general, the effects of joint injections typically last around three months.
Are joint injections safe?
Yes, joint injections are a safe procedure. Although there is some inherent risk of treatments that pierce the skin, such as infection, joint injections do not produce side effects or long recovery times. They are a simple, in-office procedure that can be performed in a few minutes.
How long does it take for facet joint injections to work?
The time it takes for joint injections to work depends on a number of different factors, including the condition being treated, the severity of the condition and how the patient responds to treatment. Some underlying conditions may affect the results, and age also plays a part: younger patients typically respond faster to treatment. On average, it takes around one to three weeks to see results, although some relief is occasionally reported immediately after the injection.
Why would I need joint injections?
You may benefit from joint injections, if:
- You have pain stemming from joint inflammation
- Your pain does not respond to other treatments
- You have pain that inhibits mobility or range of motion
- You want to avoid surgery
- You do not want to take prescription pain-killers
