Joint pain is commonly caused by injury or an inflammation of the lining in the joint. Injections of a mild cortisone or local anesthetic can effectively reduce the inflammation and alleviate the pain. These injections often complement physical therapy, and aid the patient in healing more effectively. Injections are commonly administered to the shoulders, knees or hip joints, although other areas of the body part may be affected. Ultrasound guidance of the injection ensures accuracy, and that the treatment is applied directly to the most effective area.
