Injection Therapy, Orthopedic Medicine, Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy Services in Honolulu, Hawaii

injection therapy

Orthopedic injections offer an effective way to address more difficult cases of tendonitis, ligamentous sprains, joint inflammation, and disc and fascial problems in the limbs and spine. Commonly recommended only when more conservative methods have failed, these injections target specific areas affected by injury or disease to provide relief and improve mobility.

The orthopedic injections available at Portner Orthopedic Clinic help reduce swelling and manage pain so that our physical therapists, massage therapists and other specialists can work on a progressive orthopedic solution that eliminates your pain source for good. The concentrated dose of targeted medication allows our team to calm the injury site, also known as the pain generator, so that we may attempt noninvasive therapies to permanently help heal the problem and restore full functionality.

Injection remedies can cause a pain flare to subside for several weeks to several months — long enough to see if your issues respond to a combination of nonsurgical approaches. Injections are often done with the aid of needle guidance, either fluoroscopic or ultrasound, to ensure that the placement of the needle is accurate and safe.

Injection therapy is sometimes recommended for people with back or neck pain, arthritis, sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash injuries, chronic tendonitis, sports injuries, torn tendons, ligaments and cartilage, sciatica, TMJ, and herniated discs. Dr. Portner and his team offer several types of orthopedic injections, including:

Cortisone Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy
Trigger point injections
Epidural Steroid Injections
Facet Joint Injections
Sacro-llaic Joint Injections
