Joint injections for Rheumatology at Clinic DRHC Dubai

Joint injections with corticosteroids, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) are common treatments used in rheumatology to relieve pain and inflammation in the joints. These injections can be effective in managing various joint-related conditions, including arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and ligament injuries.

At Dr. Rami Hamed Medical Center, Dubai, our team of rheumatologists specializes in joint injections with corticosteroids, PRP, and PRF. Our goal is to provide our patients with effective pain relief and improved joint function, helping them achieve better health and wellness.

Corticosteroid Injections:

Corticosteroid injections contain a powerful anti-inflammatory medication called cortisone, which is injected directly into the affected joint. Corticosteroid injections can provide rapid pain relief and reduce inflammation in the joint, allowing patients to resume their normal activities.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections:

PRP injections involve drawing a small amount of the patient's blood and processing it to concentrate the platelets, which contain growth factors that promote tissue healing and repair. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the affected joint to stimulate the body's natural healing process.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Injections:

PRF injections are similar to PRP injections but involve using a different technique to concentrate the platelets. PRF injections can be particularly effective in promoting tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation in the joint.

Joint injections with corticosteroids, PRP, and PRF are performed in our clinic under local anaesthesia to minimize discomfort. The injections are guided by ultrasound or fluoroscopy to ensure accurate placement and optimal results.

After the injection, patients may experience some soreness or swelling at the injection site, but this usually resolves within a few days. Most patients experience significant pain relief and improved joint function within a few weeks of the injection.

If you are experiencing joint pain, swelling, or inflammation, it is important to see a rheumatologist for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and learn more about our joint injection services.
