At Malek Medical Center, we strive to help our patients live healthy, active, pain-free lives. If you are experiencing joint pain due to conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, gout, or bursitis, therapeutic joint injections can help! These minimally invasive injections deliver corticosteroids to the affected joint(s), which can dramatically reduce inflammation that leads to pain and immobility.
We administer these injections under local anesthesia to improve your comfort, and most patients report only mild, brief discomfort, which wears off within a few hours. Generally, the corticosteroid begins to take effect within 1-2 days, reaching its maximum effectiveness after about 5-7 days. Pain relief from therapeutic joint injections lasts several weeks to months depending on the individual.
If you are experiencing joint pain and would like to explore your options with therapeutic joint injections, please call us at (732) 222-6637.
