Frequently Asked Questions on Joint Injections – Hip, Knee, Shoulder
Over time the fluid in your joints can begin to thin out and become watery. This causes the natural cushion to become less effective. It can be painful when the two bones rub against each other without that nice cushion. Joint injections work to replace this fluid so that your joints can work like normal. The injections may also reduce inflammation and swelling in the joint space which will help reduce pain and irritation around or at the joint.
