There are several types of joint injections which can be administered. These injections include viscosupplements and steroid (cortisone) injections. Viscosupplementation is a procedure that involves the injection of gel-like substances into a joint to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid. Steroid injections can be used to target effective anti-inflammatory treatment to a specific painful joint. The doctors at Advanced Rheumatology Center utilize a myriad of injections and in-office treatments depending on the patient’s medical need.
