Injections Q & A

What are injections?

Injections are minimally invasive treatments that can deliver medications and other substances directly into your muscle, fat, and other tissues. They bypass the digestive system for the highest potency and maximum efficiency.

Better Pain Management specializes in injectable treatments to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate weight loss.

What are the different types of injections?

Better Pain Management Strategies offers the following effective injections:

Hyaluronic acid injections

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that lubricates your body’s tissues. When injected into the knee, hyaluronic acid can:

  • Relieve pain
  • Absorb shock
  • Provide cushion
  • Reduce friction
  • Minimize inflammation

These injections are particularly helpful for people with degenerative knee problems like osteoarthritis, which causes the flexible cartilage that cushions the joint to break down. Intra-articular knee injections are one of the clinic’s specialties for pain relief.

Corticosteroid injections

Corticosteroid injections target pain and inflammation in the space surrounding a damaged joint, tendon, or muscle. The injection is twofold, containing anti-inflammatory and numbing medications. 

When injected into the intended area, a corticosteroid injection provides temporary pain relief and reduces inflammation, allowing you to complete rehabilitation and physical therapy programs without chronic pain.

Semaglutide and Mounjaro®

Semaglutide and Mounjaro are FDA-approved medications for diabetes that have been clinically shown to promote weight loss in adults. These weekly injections may help you achieve sustainable weight loss.

Do weight loss injections really work?

Weight loss injections can result in significant weight loss when paired with healthy habits like diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. Semaglutide and Mounjaro accelerate weight loss by suppressing your appetite and reducing food cravings. 

While weight loss injections can’t replace diet and exercise, they can make achieving and maintaining your goal weight easier, which may improve your overall health.

How often do I need injections to maintain my results?

Weight loss injections typically require weekly administration to maintain your results. However, some people may need more or less frequent injections. Your Better Pain Management Strategies provider works with you to develop the appropriate weight management plan.

If you have chronic pain, your provider may recommend corticosteroid injections once every six weeks or about 3-4 times a year. Hyaluronic acid injections for knee pain typically provide enough relief that you may only need one once every six months.
