Joint injections are used for number of diagnostic and therapeutic uses and are a highly effective and relatively non-intrusive way of handling joint problems. As an athlete or someone living an active lifestyle, recurrent joint pains may slow you down a bit and whereas taking medication and other forms of treatment work, sometimes the best option is to use joint injections.

Joint Injuries and Repair

Diagnostically, joint injections can be used to aspirate fluid from a joint for testing purposes. Therapeutically, joint injections are used to reduce the amount of fluid in the joint or to deliver localized medication into the joint capsule. The two most widely classes of medication delivered this way are anti-inflammatory drugs mostly of the steroidal type and lubricating fluid, primarily hyaluronic acid.

At Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute, our physicians have worked with joint injections for years and have the necessary expertise and precision to deliver these injections to the very specific areas needed. This is why you should always choose a practice and doctors with extensive experience in joint injections.

Trigger Finger Release

Trigger finger is a general term used in orthopedics to describe a condition where any one of the fingers becomes either partially or fully immobilized owing to a discrepancy between the size of the tendons extending the fingers and the sheath through which these tendons pass. Partial causes a snapping sound whenever the fingers are extended while in complete trigger finger, the tendons get stuck in the sheath and will not extend at all.
