joint and spine painJoints form the connections between bones and provide the support to help you move. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain.

Your vertebrae protects your spinal cord, which is a major component of your central nervous system. Any irritation to your vertebrae, discs, or spinal cord can also cause continual discomfort.

At Spine Specialists of Atlanta, we can help you overcome the pain in either your joint or spine. Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to develop a plan to improve your quality of life. There are options to help you get back in control and give you the peace you deserve. Below are both steroidal and non-steroidal joint and spine pain injection solutions.


Joint Injections for Pain Management

In recent years more pain relief and management options have emerged for treating joint pain. If you’ve been thinking that your joint pain options were limited, then you will want to strongly consider joint injections.

Joint injections are non-steroidal and can help you achieve impressive results. Currently, we offer three non-steroidal joint pain solutions: Sarapin, Supartz and Lidocain/Zeel. We are using these treatments to address an array of joint pain in our patients with impressive success.


Alternatives to Knee Surgery

knee painYou can get around with a problematic shoulder or hand, but problems with your knee can bring your mobility to a stand still. Knee joint pain, as exemplified in osteoarthritis of the knee, causes considerable pain and inflammation. Surgery comes with many potential complications and problems. Most are not aware that surgery is not the only answer for knee joint pain. Below are a few solutions that continue to bring our patients relief from uncomfortable joint pain.


Non-Steroidal Injections

Supartz is a joint fluid therapy that uses highly purified sodium hyaluronate, which is very similar to synovial fluid (joint lubricant and shock absorber) used to treat Osteoarthritis (degeneration of joint cartilage and bone).Supartz is not a synthetic, which means reduced risk of an allergic reaction.

If you want optimal joint health, it is necessary to keep your synovium and its fluid in prime condition. Supartz actually works to increase the viscosity of the synovial fluid. Your pain will be reduced as synovial fluid works to cushion and lubricate your joints. Finally, you will be able to easily move your knee and be pain free.

Chronic pain can work to cause the degeneration of joint cartilage and connective tissue. Those looking for an effective and promising non-surgical approach to relieving joint pain will find that Lidocain/Zeel is a highly effective option.

Lidocain is a local anesthetic often used as a dental anesthetic and a local anesthetic for minor surgery. Zeel is a chemical free medicine that can help improve joint pain ranging from osteoarthritis to cartilage and connective tissue issues and more. Zeel is frequently used to address degenerative arthritis and osteoarthritis. Made from a mixture of botanicals, amino acids and minerals, Zeel has been very effective in addressing joint pain for patients around the world.

Lidocain/Zeel is administered in the form of shots over a several week period. However, it is key that those taking this treatment route finish an entire course in order to achieve results. It improves cartilage/connective tissue function and is designed to deliver maximum effectiveness with minimal discomfort. If you are looking for a way to reduce joint inflammation and pain, you will typically experience impressive results with Lidocain/Zeel.

Back pain is one of the most commonly cited pains. Treating back pain can be problematic as it can have a variety of causes. Sarapin is a natural medicine derived from the Pitcher plant, that is used to treat back pain and Sciatica, Alcoholic Neuritis, Intercostal Neuralgia, Lumbar Neuralgia and many others.

Like Lidocain/Zeel and Supartz, Sarapin is administered via shots. Sarapin is an alternative for those seeking a natural way to address pain.

Those considering using Sarapin as a remedy for their pain will be happy to learn that there are no known side effects and it is FDA and AMA approved. Sarapin is used as an alternative to cortisol and has safely been used for over 70 years to treat a variety of pain.


Steroidal Injection and Medicines

Acute Knee Pain

We also offer steroidal injections to assist with pain management, as they can effectively reduce inflammation. We can inject these steroids directly into the inflamed areas and have used this technique to treat everything from arthritis to gout.

These synthetic drugs are designed to resemble the naturally occurring cortisol in your body. When steroids are injected locally, the chance of negative side effects is very low. Due to the fact that this treatment is so well tolerated, it is a highly recommended way to reduce inflammation in the joints. Plus, our patients find that the relief comes very quickly. They also appreciate the fact that none of the side effects that accompany oral anti-inflammation medicines, such as stomach ailments are present.
