Sports Medicine Injection Therapies
When it hurts to move, injection therapies are available for relieving pain. When appropriate, injection therapies can be a treatment option beyond regular painkillers, exercise or physical therapy.
Providence Sports Medicine offers a variety of injection therapies that can help treat your pain and restore movement. We use ultrasound-guided technology to help improve the accuracy and location of the injection. Our sports medicine experts can help assess your needs and recommend a treatment that best fits your situation.
- Trigger point injections treat spasms and tension in muscle areas.
- Joint injections are most commonly steroid injections used to relieve pain and inflammation in the joints.
- Hyaluronic acid and Synvisc injections are used to treat osteoarthritis, most often in the knee.
- Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, injections are regenerative treatments that use your own own blood platelets to stimulate healing in injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
