  • Supartz Injections
    Osteoarthritis in your knees? Steroid injections didn’t work or are no longer working? Maybe it’s time for Supartz. Supartz is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in your joint cartilage and in the synovial fluid that fills your joints. In the knee joint, hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a cushion in the knee. Patients with osteoarthritis or other medical conditions experience a decrease in hyaluronan in the knee. Also, with age this will decrease as well. The Nurse Practitioner injects Supartz directly into the knee joint under ultrasound- guidance. Supartz is injected once per week for 5 weeks. After treatment is complete, for many patients this not only provides pain relief but aids in restoring mobility, increasing independence, and a return to previous activities. Supartz injections can help to prolong joint replacement in some cases.

Phisiotherapy & Rehabilitation

Unfortunately, many people still pigeonhole chiropractic care as simply a temporary method of treating back pain. As a result, those people suffer needless pain that could be effectively controlled with chiropractic treatment.

Trigger Point Injections(TPI)

Painful muscles? Feel knots under the skin that hurt? You may benefit from trigger point injections (TPI). TPI is a series of injections our Nurse Practitioner can provide here at Valli. Many patients benefit from these including athletes, those suffering from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and may other painful muscular or musculoskeletal disorders. Also, patients whom have been in a motor vehicle accident, sustained work related injuries, or suffer from mobility issues related to health conditions frequently develop trigger points. On the first day of injection, approximately 6 injections are done. When a needle enters, the body rushes platelets to the area, helping your muscles to start to heal. This is much in the same way if you were to cut yourself, your body automatically rushes platelets to the area to began the healing process. This is similar to a process physical therapists do called “dry needling,” however; with TPI you also get the benefit of the Lidocaine. Lidocaine helps to numb the muscle and cause it to relax providing additional pain relief. Ever heard of muscle memory? This treatment is a 6 week process in attempt to retrain the muscle; to teach it a new, less painful “normal.”

Ultrasound Guided Joint Injection

Pain in your knees? Shoulder? Any other joint? Has your doctor referred you to and orthopedic specialist for a joint injection? You may wait weeks to months to get in with an orthopedist. Our Nurse Practitioner can see you the same day and is proud to offer ultrasound-guided joint injections. A steroid mixed with Lidocaine is placed in the joint under ultrasound-guidance. A small gauge needle is used (the same gauge as an insulin needle) for the patient’s comfort. For many patients, this not only provides pain relief but aids in restoring mobility, increasing independence, and a return to previous activities. Joint injections can help to prolong joint replacement in some cases. It helps to reduce inflammation. With chiropractic care, physical therapy, and weight loss (if needed) patients may experience a slowing in joint degradation.

Bursa Injections

“Oh no! I’ve got the bursitis!” Ultrasound guided steroid bursa injections is another service our Nurse Practitioner provides. Bursa injection may be right for you if your joint pain has not improved after making simple lifestyle changes, such as resting the joint, using
compression bands or taking anti-inflammatory medication. There are over 150 bursae in the human body, any of which can became inflamed and cause pain. A bursa is a fluid filled sac that cushions between bones and tendons and/or muscles around a joint. The most common bursae to become inflamed are in the upper arms (the subacromial bursae) and around the hip (the trochanteric bursae). However, you also have bursae in your elbows, knees, and many other places. This treatment consists of one injection and can be repeated every 3 months as needed. In between time, an injection of a mild pain medicine with anesthetic can be injected if needed. Many patients need no further injections though!
