Injection Clinic

We offer several types of injections as part of our MSK practice.

An injection may be appropriate as a conservative therapy for a patient who is experiencing pain or discomfort, or onset of osteoartritis, but is not currently a good surgical candidate.

An injection is intended to provide the individual with pain relief for several weeks or months. However, individual results vary and the intended results cannot be guaranteed.

Please note that most injections are an uninsured service and fees for the injection are likely to apply.

OUR APPROACH

As stewards of patient health and our healthcare system, we evaluate the patient without bias to determine the best treatment plan.

1. Consultation and Assessment - a focused musculoskeletal assessment will be conducted before injection.

2. The Most Appropriate Treatment - an alternate treatment may be proposed.

3. Follow-Up - after treatment, the patient requires follow-up to monitor intended results and patient health.
