Injections Q & A

What are injections?

Injections are treatments that involve the quick administration of medications, fluids, or nutrients into your body. Dr. Bailey could administer injections into your muscle, skin, or a vein.

Though you can take most medications and supplements by mouth, not all are well-tolerated by the digestive system. Some can cause abdominal pain or other unpleasant symptoms. Or, you may need a higher dose of a medication or nutrient you can’t take by mouth.

Some injections work best when delivered directly into the area of the body that needs it.

Dr. Bailey is an experienced family medicine physician who provides injections at his private medical practice.

What are some of the available injections?

At Elite Health Center, Dr. Bailey provides injections to reduce joint pain, improve hormone balance, and boost general health. The available injections include:

Joint injections

Dr. Bailey provides joint injections to reduce joint pain. These injections can contain a corticosteroid, a medication that reduces inflammation and pain, and a local anesthetic.

Testosterone

Testosterone is a male sex hormone that declines with age. Dr. Bailey offers testosterone injections as part of your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Lipo B injections

Lipo B injections contain B vitamins, vitamin C, choline, inositol, and methionine. Dr. Bailey provides monthly Lipo B injections to jumpstart weight loss and support general health.

CJC 1295 peptide injections

CJC 1295 peptide injections increase protein synthesis and insulin-like growth factors.

Wellness injections

Dr. Bailey also provides wellness injections like vitamin B12 and glutathione, a potent antioxidant that can only be given by injection.

Am I a candidate for injections?

Dr. Bailey determines if you’re a candidate for injections after an evaluation.

He reviews symptoms, health concerns, and medical history during a physical exam. He runs lab work to check your hormone levels and look for nutritional deficiencies. Dr. Bailey could recommend this treatment if you have a health condition that would benefit from injections.

For example, he might recommend joint injections if you have arthritis pain that affects your mobility or low testosterone that affects your mood and libido.
