Patients usually pay with credit card or cash and we provide a detailed reciept so that they can file insurance on their own. The advantage is, we can usually see patients within the same week they request an appointment. Concierge orthopedic medicine patients can see Dr. Brad Hall in a luxury, non-clinical environment to get evaluated and treated for shoulder pain, hip pain and knee pain. Dr. Brad Hall utilizes cortisone injections, placed with precision, to provide swelling reduction and relief for joint pain without the long, complicated process of going through insurance and without the long wait typically associated with seeing orthopedic specialists in San Antonio. Dr. Hall also provides second opinions.
How does our orthopedic evaluation work? Dr. Hall will ask you questions about your pain. Be as specific as possible when describing your pain. Use details such as where you feel pain, what type of pain you have, how often it hurts, how severe your pain is, and whether or not pain is preventing you from enjoying daily activities. You should also describe any past injuries that could be contributing to your pain. Let him know about any other chronic pain you deal with, even if it seems unrelated.
Before we can administer cortisone injections, Dr. Hall will ask you a few questions and give you an evaluation to determine your needs. He may ask questions about your medical history, including any underlying medical conditions such as arthritis or diabetes.
To further evaluate your pain, Dr. Hall will most likely conduct a few physical tests. These tests are meant to check your flexibility, range of motion, and reflexes. He will also check the affected area for swelling and visible symptoms of a condition such as visible lumps, asymmetrical swelling, etc.
Dr. Hall may have you bend, walk and sit down to test your range of motion. Watching your body’s ability to perform movements helps him evaluate your flexibility to determine your level of pain and where cortisone injections can help.
Cortisone shots are injections that can help relieve pain and inflammation in a specific area of your body. They’re most commonly injected into joints — such as your ankle, elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, spine or wrist. Even the small joints in your hands or feet might benefit from cortisone shots.
The injections usually contain a corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic. Often, you can receive one at your doctor’s office. Because of potential side effects, the number of shots you can get in a year generally is limited.
