Injections play a crucial role in orthopedics for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Common injections used in orthopedics are Corticosteroid Injections, Hyaluronic Acid Injections, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections and Stem Cell Injections.

Types of Orthopedic Injections in Miami​ 

  • Corticosteroid Injections: These injections contain corticosteroid medication, such as prednisone or methylprednisolone, which help reduce inflammation and relieve pain. They are commonly used for conditions like osteoarthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and certain joint inflammations.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Injections: Hyaluronic acid injections are used to treat osteoarthritis, particularly in the knee joint. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint, providing temporary relief from pain and improving joint function.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections: PRP injections involve drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to concentrate platelets, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the affected area. Platelets contain growth factors that can promote healing and tissue regeneration, making PRP injections beneficial for conditions like tendon injuries and osteoarthritis.
  • Stem Cell Injections: Stem cell injections involve injecting stem cells into injured or damaged tissues to promote healing and tissue regeneration. While research is still ongoing, stem cell therapy shows promise in orthopedics for conditions such as osteoarthritis, cartilage defects, and tendon injuries.
