Our wrist injection procedure is a minimally invasive technique designed to deliver immediate relief and long-term improvement for various wrist conditions. This treatment is typically performed under the guidance of precision imaging technology, ensuring accuracy and effectiveness. The injections usually contain a combination of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid, which work together to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. The process is swift, usually taking only a few minutes, and is performed in our comfortable and welcoming clinic environment.
In addition to pain relief, our wrist injections aim to improve the overall function of the wrist. Patients often report increased mobility and a significant decrease in discomfort during daily activities post-treatment. The team at Urban Spine and Joint takes great care in preparing each patient for the procedure, explaining the steps involved, and setting realistic expectations about the outcomes and any potential side effects.
Our dedicated medical professionals are highly trained in the field of joint care and bring a wealth of experience to each treatment. We prioritize patient safety and comfort, ensuring that every step of the procedure, from consultation to post-treatment care, is handled with the utmost professionalism and care.
Wrist injections at Urban Spine and Joint are indicated for a variety of conditions affecting the wrist and hand. One of the primary conditions treated with these injections is wrist arthritis, where the cartilage deteriorates, leading to pain and stiffness. Patients suffering from chronic wrist pain due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis often find significant relief through our targeted injection treatments.
Another common indication for wrist injections is carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition characterized by numbness, tingling, or weakness in the hand due to pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. Wrist injections can help reduce the swelling and inflammation associated with this condition, thereby alleviating the pressure on the nerve.
Additionally, wrist injections are beneficial for patients experiencing tendonitis, which is the inflammation of the tendons in the wrist. This condition can result from repetitive motion or overuse injuries, common among athletes and individuals with certain occupations. Our wrist injection treatment effectively reduces tendon inflammation, leading to pain relief and improved wrist function.
Furthermore, individuals with ligament sprains or strains in the wrist area may also benefit from these injections. The therapy helps in managing pain and swelling, facilitating a quicker and more comfortable recovery process.
At Urban Spine and Joint, we are committed to providing our patients with comprehensive care and the most effective treatments for their wrist conditions. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that each patient receives a personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and helps them return to their daily activities with enhanced comfort and mobility.
