Joint injection treatment

Common conditions

Joint injections can be beneficial for people with arthritis or pain in major joints. In these patients, regenerative joint injections can help alleviate discomfort and improve function. People who aren’t yet ready for a hip, knee, or shoulder replacement are often good candidates for joint injections. Our joint treatments are used most often with the following conditions:

  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Foot pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Hand pain
  • Wrist pain

Regenerative joint injections

Treatment process

Regenerative joint injections are prepared using your own blood. After your blood is drawn, it is placed in a specialized system which  separates the highly concentrated plasma from the other components of your blood, such as red blood cells.

Next, the plasma is injected into the site of your pain or injury. There, they release growth factors that help accelerate the healing-regenerative process. Your nurse practitioner will anesthetize the treatment site before the procedure to reduce initial discomfort.

Joint injection benefits

  • Regenerative joint injections can offer consistent pain relief and functional improvement for one year or longer.
  • Because the highly concentrated plasma is derived from your own blood, there is a low chance of having an allergic reaction or abnormal immune response.
  • Regenerative joint injections have minimal risk of local infection (<1%). Serious side effects or complications are extremely rare. Minor pain at the site of the injection is common in the short term but is easily managed with pain relievers.
  • Regenerative joint injections are beneficial for a broad range of people including athletes, post-surgical patients, and those with arthritis or who want to avoid surgery.

“Regenerative joint injections can help promote healing in clients with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. At Bion Aesthetics and Med Spa we may suggest joint injections for people with sport- or activity-related injuries, arthritis, or during or after surgery on a major joint.”

“In keeping with my approach to treat the whole person, I have assembled procedures that help patients transform at every level. Each treatment offered at Bion Aesthetics and Med Spa was specifically chosen because it works, is practical, and provides rejuvenation from the inside out.”

Frequently asked questions

What are PRP joint injections?2023-04-23T15:52:29-04:00

PRP joint injections merge technology with the body’s natural ability to heal itself to help relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) works to invigorate the release of growth factors to stimulate repair of the joint. It also encourages the production of collagen to further repair prior damage.

What are PRP joint injection benefits?2023-04-23T15:52:29-04:00

PRP joint injection benefits include:

  • Safe, quick, and low-impact procedure.
  • No downtime required.
  • Eliminates pain and discomfort.
  • Restore healthy joints and cartilage quality.
  • Significant improvement in joint mobility.
  • Promote natural healing in the body.
What conditions can PRP joint injections treat?2023-04-23T15:52:28-04:00

PRP has been widely used in the treatment of traumatic and degenerative injuries. PRP Joint Injections can accelerate the healing of a number of conditions for the knee, elbow, foot, ankle, and hands. Conditions include:

  • Acute muscle tears and strains
  • Chronic Tendinopathies
  • Ligament injuries (ie: medial or lateral collateral ligament—MCL/LCL)
  • Osteoarthritis
Who is an ideal candidate for PRP joint injections?2023-04-25T07:37:25-04:00

Candidates who have moderate osteoarthritis in the knee, hands, or feet, or chronic tendinitis in the elbow or ankle.

Who is not an ideal candidate for PRP Joint Injections?2023-04-25T07:38:14-04:00

PRP is not for clients with the following conditions:

  • Severe anemia
  • Low platelet count
  • Abnormal platelet function
  • Active systemic infection
  • Active cancer

We do not recommend it for the following individuals:

  • Anyone with a cancer (such as prostate cancer or breast cancer) who has not been in remission for at least 5 years
  • Certain other malignancies or blood-borne diseases that are currently being treated
  • Any current infection
  • Clients with multiple medical issues may not be good candidates
  • Clients using an anticoagulant can receive PRP with counseling
How quickly do PRP joint injections work?2023-04-25T07:35:47-04:00

PRP is intended as a healing modality and not for quick pain relief. Pain gradually subsides as the injured tissue repairs and pain-relieving growth factors activate. This process takes anywhere from weeks or months, but when successful, the effect is long-lasting. If relief is not sufficient at three months, a second injection may be performed.

Maximum effects are usually seen at six to nine months. Some knee joints may require two injections in closer proximity in time.

What is the recovery time for PRP joint injections?2023-04-25T07:36:37-04:00

The recovery time for PRP joint injections is typically 3 – 5 days. More time may be needed for comfort.

Are PRP joint injections safe?2023-04-23T15:52:08-04:00

Since the practitioner extracts PRP from your own blood, there are few and only minor potential side effects. These include minor bleeding or bruising, swelling, and very rarely infection.

Are PRP joint injections painful?2023-04-23T15:52:08-04:00

Most clients tolerate the injection well enough, but there may be soreness due to PRP-induced inflammatory response. Expect some swelling and soreness during the first 48 hours after the injection.
