Arthritis Injections Q & A

What are arthritis injections?

Arthritis injections available at JAM Wellness Clinics reduce pain associated with arthritis, which is a condition that causes joint deterioration and inflammation. Injections are common treatments for arthritis and can dramatically improve your quality of life.

What are the symptoms of arthritis?

If you have arthritis, you may experience the following signs or symptoms associated with the disease:

  • Joint pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Reduce mobility
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Joint damage
  • Visible joint disfigurement

The earlier you seek treatment for arthritis, the better your outcome as early detection and treatment can prevent complications. See the JAM Wellness Clinics team at the first sign of joint problems.

What are the risk factors for arthritis?

Arthritis is a common chronic condition that can happen to anyone, but some factors increase your risk of developing it. Examples include:

  • Family history of arthritis
  • Older age
  • Obesity
  • Previous joint injuries

Adopting healthy habits and maintaining an ideal weight are the best ways to reduce the risk of arthritis, but there's no surefire way to prevent it.

Are arthritis injections right for me?

To find out if you have arthritis or if you’re a candidate for arthritis injections, the JAM Wellness Clinics team discusses your symptoms and medical history. They check your vital signs and complete a physical exam, paying close attention to joint structure, function, and range of motion.

Your family medicine specialist could order blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or ultrasound to determine the type and severity of arthritis you have.

What should I expect during arthritis injections?

During arthritis injections, you relax on a comfortable exam table or in a chair. Your provider uses a very fine needle to gently inject pain-relieving, inflammation-reducing substances into joint tissues. The treatment is quick and virtually painless but offers dramatic results for your joint health and quality of life.

They may recommend periodic arthritis injections for long-lasting relief, as well as physical therapy, oral medicines, or surgery if needed to fully restore joint structure and function.
