If the medication you’re taking no longer effectively reduces chronic inflammation and pain in your joints or soft tissues, it could be time to consider the benefits of injections. At Integrity Spine & Orthopedics, our experienced medical team offers a range of injection therapies to treat the symptoms of arthritis, tendinitis, and other musculoskeletal conditions. We use advanced X-ray technology (fluoroscopy) to guide the injection into a precise location so that you receive the medication’s full benefit.

Injections are a minimally invasive treatment for musculoskeletal pain that doesn’t respond well to oral medication.
At Integrity Spine & Orthopedics, our team offers several injectable therapies to deliver anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication directly into damaged tissue.
You could be a candidate for injections if you suffer persistent joint or soft-tissue pain caused by injuries or conditions like:
Our team also offers injection therapies to relieve pain so you can heal more efficiently. Injections can also make it easier to participate in physical therapy and reduce the need for more invasive procedures, including surgery.
Available injection therapies include:
Corticosteroids deliver anti-inflammatory medication into painful joints to reduce inflammation caused by injuries or diseases like arthritis.
Epidural steroid injections deliver anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication into the spine’s epidural space to relieve pain from herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and other spine conditions.
Nerve blocks use injections of anesthetic medication to prevent the transmission of pain signals from damaged nerves to your brain.
PRP therapy is a regenerative therapy that uses injections of blood plasma containing high concentrations of platelets. Platelets support the regeneration of cells to heal soft-tissue injuries.
Our team also offers regenerative therapy using stem cells. These cells have the unique ability to become any kind of cell, including bone, nerve, and soft tissue, to heal musculoskeletal damage caused by injury or disease.
These injection therapies are available at Integrity Spine & Orthopedics on an outpatient basis.
To ensure the needle goes into a precise point in your body, we rely on fluoroscopy, a real-time X-ray technology. A monitor displays images of your joints, soft tissues, and bones to help our team guide the needle into place and inject the medication.
The injection can cause minor discomfort, but that should go away soon afterward. You might notice some improvement in your pain and mobility right after the injection. However, it can take several hours or days to experience the full effects of your treatment.
Our orthopedic team monitors your progress with injection therapies. In some cases, we recommend additional treatments to keep you pain-free.
