Peripheral Joint Injections Kennesaw, GA

Peripheral Joint Injections

The joints in the body can all be affected by deterioration, arthritis and inflammation, causing pain and limiting mobility. The peripheral joints include the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hips, knees and ankles. When inflammation affects these peripheral joints, the pain can be disabling. Our pain specialists at Medici Spine & Pain offer effective treatment plans to reduce pain, increase mobility and improve the quality of life for patients with peripheral joint pain, including injection therapy.

Whenever there is injury or deterioration of a joint, there can be inflammation, friction or cartilage damage that causes pain. Peripheral joint injections deliver steroids or other medications directly to the interior of the joint to relieve inflammation and reduce pain. Most commonly, a local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroid are injected into the joint. The anesthetic numbs the joint for immediate relief during the procedure. The steroid takes a few days to relieve inflammation and offer relief, but the pain can be diminished for several weeks or a few months.

Joint Pain Relief with Injection Therapy

Peripheral joint injections can offer relief for many different joint conditions, including osteoarthritis, injuries and wear/tear damage. The injections are guided through x-rays or imaging to ensure the precise delivery of the medications to the inflamed area. Most steroid joint injections can be repeated every few months to sustain pain relief. Peripheral joint injections can be combined with other therapies and treatment modalities that we use as part of a multidisciplinary approach to chronic joint pain at Medici Spine & Pain.

If you have chronic joint pain and want to explore options for relief without invasive surgery or narcotics, contact Medici Spine & Pain today to schedule a consultation. We have clinics in the greater Atlanta area and a surgery center located in Marietta. We accept many insurance plans, including Medicare, that cover injection therapy for joint pain.

We can help you!

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
