Do These Procedures Hurt?
All procedures can be done with precisely placed local anesthetic/numbing medicine with ultrasound guidance. Typically this is the most painful part, but well tolerated by most. We are all wired differently and some patients request to receive sedation, please feel free to discuss this with Dr. Binegar. Regenerative medicine injection techniques use the body’s own inflammatory/healing response, so it is not uncommon to experience increased pain during the first 2-5 days post-procedure. You may also require a brace and/or a crutch for the first few days to a week. We also prescribe pain medications during this time period.
