Injections Therapies Q & A

What kinds of injection therapies are there?

At Sports Medicine of Monterey Bay, Dr. Scott offers a variety of different injection therapies. Depending on your needs, he may administer:

  • Corticosteroids
  • Viscosupplement
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
  • Prolotherapy
  • Trigger point injections

To enhance your procedure, Dr. Scott may use an ultrasound to guide him, ensuring he gives the injection in the most suitable location.

How do injection therapies work?

Injection therapies use a needle to administer a substance directly into your bloodstream or the area that needs it. That allows the substance to bypass your gastrointestinal system, where it’s often degraded.

Dr. Scott gives you the injection directly into your targeted area. He may use corticosteroid injections to reduce pain and inflammation in your joints and prolotherapy to stop the pain in your ligaments and tendons.

Although they do so through different means, both prolotherapy and PRP have a restorative effect and can stimulate and enhance the body’s ability to heal.

Viscosupplement injections use a gel-like fluid that acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in your joints, while trigger point injections relieve muscle tightness and improve blood flow.

What conditions does injection therapy treat?

Injection therapies treat a vast array of ailments and conditions. In many cases, Dr. Scott uses these injections to treat pain and inflammation and to enhance the body’s healing abilities.

Injection therapy can improve the condition of your joints, especially when impacted by tendonitis, arthritis, or past injuries. Dr. Scott recommends these injections for pain, joint instability, and limited range of motion.

These treatments can also reduce back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as treat the symptoms of sciatica. Dr. Scott also suggests injection therapy for specific sports injuries, including:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Ligament laxity and tears
  • Tendon ruptures
  • Connective tissue repair
  • Mobility issues

If you’re suffering from chronic pain, recurrent injury, or a severe sports injury and you’re not responding to traditional treatments, find a solution with injectable therapies at Sports Medicine of Monterey Bay. Call to schedule your appointment with Dr. Scott or book it online today.
