Injections for Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can happen across the body, impacting how you live your daily life. Not only does this affect your physical life, but your mental health too. Without treatment, chronic pain could lead to depression and anxiety, often worsening the pain you are already experiencing due to lack of sleep. Tired of the endless pain and not sure where to start? Injections for chronic pain could help you.

Is There an Injection Right for Me?

At Performance Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we offer two different injections to treat acute and chronic joint pain. While acute pain happens quickly and often has a specific cause, chronic pain can have many triggers, such as illness, age and even old injuries. It lasts a substantially longer, from several weeks to several years. Depending on the pain you are experiencing, we have injections for chronic pain to help you live your life with less pain.

Our first injection is a steroid injection. Steroids decrease immune system activity and reduce inflammation. Specifically, they minimize inflammation for conditions in the shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, hands, etc. Next, we have Visco supplementation injections. Visco injections lubricate the bones and help joint loads. For more information on which injection is best for you, click here.

Injections for Chronic Pain Results

One of the most common questions patients ask is, “when will I notice the results of my injection”? Because each individual’s body is experiencing different levels of pain and reacts differently to each treatment, there is no definite answer. During your visit, our orthopaedic surgeon will discuss the best-case expectation with you to determine potential injections and results.

Wonderful Client Feedback

Dr. Diehl always listens and takes the most conservative approach for the injury rather than surgery first. He’s taken care of several of my sprains & falls. Highly recommend.


I really like Dr. Maurer. He is so down-to-earth and honest. I’ve learned to trust his advice and guidance because he cares about his patients.


Scheduling was quick, office staff was friendly and efficient and nurse and x-ray tech were friendly and thorough. Dr. Lessner was prompt and friendly. He made us feel comfortable and explained everything clearly and thoroughly.


This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!


Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!


Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.
