Musculoskeletal Injection Q & A

There are various ways to treat Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, some of the treatments involve injecting substances in the site of pain. Injection method is used to relieve pain and speed up your body’s regeneration process naturally. A lubricant that occurs naturally in your body is used as one form of injection method. Osteoarthritis patients can reduce joint pain and stiffness by injecting the lubricant in the areas lacking the fluid.



Musculoskeletal injection may also help:

  • Inhibit inflammation

  • Slow down the progression of degenerative diseases

  • Stimulate the formation of new cartilage

  • Increase the production of natural lubricating fluid, thereby easing painful joint friction

  • Reduce pain 

The course of action:

Musculoskeletal injection is a highly effective treatment for tendinopathies, such as tennis elbow; such conditions take a very long time to subside without treatment. However, there are a variety of other MSK conditions for which intra-articular, trigger point injection could be effective. Furthermore, the procedure is safe from any significant side effects.We provide anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving injections directly to the joint or soft tissues causing pain.

How are Musculoskeletal injections delivered?

Under aseptic conditions, the physician will insert a needle and guide it into the area of inflammation with the help of ultrasound. Then the provider will inject a local mixture into the area of inflammation. After the needle is removed, hot/cold packs are applied followed by application of a bandaid on the needle insertion point. The needle is a similar size to a vaccination needle and thinner than a blood-taking needle, so the bandaid is only needed for approximately 2 hours.
