Over 50 million Americans suffer with arthritis. Arthritis is associated with pain, joint stiffness, inflammation, swelling and decreased range of motion. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis, with osteoarthritis (OA) the most common (40 million).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease, where the body attacks itself. Antibodies develop and cause pain in joint tissues. Women are three times more likely to get this than men.
There is no single treatment that works for everyone with arthritis. Even two people with the same diagnosis will likely experience pain differently and react differently to different treatments. Your own pain may vary greatly from one day to another or throughout the course of a single day.
That’s why each person needs a pain management plan. What works for one person may not work for someone else and you may need to try several different treatments before you find one that works best for you. Pain Therapy Associates will develop a pain management plan designed to minimize your unique pain experience and improve the function of your joints.
Osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are chronic diseases that can last a lifetime, even with proper care. The accompanying pain is distressing because it affects the patient in so many ways. That’s why learning how to manage pain for the long term is an important factor in controlling the disease and maintaining your quality of life.
Injection therapies are safe, minimally invasive procedures that can provide pain relief lasting for weeks, months or years. They can often relieve your pain symptoms when other pain relievers such as NSAIDs and other pain medications have failed to bring you adequate relief.
We may inject medication in or around the painful area. We rely on precise images to guide the vast majority of our pain relief injections. This is accomplished using a specialized medical device called a fluoroscope. Through fluoroscopic imaging, the optimum injection site appears on a high-definition video monitor.
Epidural injections – Medications are injected into the epidural space in the surrounding the spinal cord’s outermost membrane, for back pain relief.
Facets joint injections – Corticosteroids and anesthetics are injected between the vertebrae directly in the facet joint area for precise diagnosis and arthritis joint treatment.
Sacroiliac & other injections – Anti-inflammatory steroid medication and local anesthetic are injected to provide relief from pain caused by arthritis, injury or strain of the sacroiliac joint or other areas.
