An injection is the delivery of medication into a muscle, fatty tissue, joint, or other part of the body. Injections offer rapid delivery, so your body can process the drug quickly and gain its benefits right away.
Primary Medical Physicians, LLC offers injections of several types, with two of the most common including:
Intra articular injections go directly into a painful or inflamed joint. Usually, intra articular injections contain corticosteroids with a local anesthetic. The local anesthetic offers short-term numbing, and the corticosteroid kicks in later, reducing inflammation and pain.
Conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout might require intra articular injections.
The injections generally offer longer-lasting pain relief than oral anti-inflammatory or pain medications, but the effects wear off within anywhere from a few days to several months.
Some of the joints most commonly treated with intra articular injections are the hips, knees, shoulders, ankles, and wrists.
Testosterone injections can effectively increase testosterone hormones in men with too-low blood testosterone levels.
In general, adult men with a testosterone level of less than 300 ng/dL have low testosterone. However, average testosterone levels can vary by age, with levels declining in your 30s, 40s, and beyond.
When your testosterone levels are low, you can experience low sex drive, weight gain, muscle loss, irritability, and other disruptive problems. Testosterone injections replace your missing testosterone and significantly relieve your symptoms.
In general, testosterone injections are only recommended for men who experience significantly intrusive symptoms and have low blood testosterone levels during lab testing.
Primary Medical Physicians, LLC also offers other types of injections in their three offices in Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, and Davie.
Testosterone injections are intramuscular, going directly into your muscle. They’re generally not too painful, but you’ll probably experience a pinch and twinge. Many men administer testosterone injections at home. The team instructs you in injection protocols so you can do this safely.
Intra articular injections are usually well-tolerated because the team administers a local anesthetic. You might experience some localized burning, but the sensation fades rapidly after your injection. The team performs intra articular injections in the office.
