The most common culprit of joint pain is osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease that affects millions of people. This condition damages the cartilage around your bone. Think of your car’s brake pads. As time goes by, the pads wear down to the point that metal is rubbing on metal. As we get older, our cartilage can wear down as well, so that bone rubs against bone. This discomfort can drastically inhibit your ability to move and make the simplest tasks an excruciatingly painful experience. Older age, joint injuries, genetics, and bone deformities can be root causes of osteoarthritis. Other causes of joint discomfort are tendinitis, gout, bursitis, and sports related injuries. Joint pain plagues the lives of many, and Neuropathy Treatment Clinic of Oklahoma provides an actionable solution to help you experience relief and give you a game plan. Our joint pain injections can ensure proper healing.

Simple over-the-counter pain medication, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, will only mask pain temporarily. Our long-term solution will give you confidence to do the activities you love, pain-free. Here at NTCO, we will apply joint injections designed to lubricate the joint during movement. The synovial fluid in your body acts as a cushion for your joints during strenuous movement. A key component of synovial fluid is hyaluronic acid, which depreciates later in life. Our joint injections have a healthy dose of hyaluronic acid and will help restore your synovial fluid to optimal health, giving the assurance you need to move pain free throughout the day.
Everyone responds differently to treatment depending on their level of activity. A runner’s joints are more susceptible to joint wear and tear as opposed to someone who is less active. Preexisting conditions also come into play. The average person needs up to five treatments done at weekly intervals before experiencing relief in pain, and treatments can be performed on only one knee or both knees simultaneously. Our goal is to give your body the right amount of cushion to support your joints throughout the day. Establishing a plan and receiving joint injections can relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis and other causes of joint pain.
After receiving injections, taking these precautions will ensure that you get back to living a pain-free life and enjoy the activities you love:
- Avoid strenuous activity for 48-hours to allow your body adequate time to heal
- Apply ice to the area of the injection
- Avoid bathing in a tub for a couple of days
- Avoid jogging or heavy lifting
