It’s highly inconvenient if you have to visit a separate treatment center for straightforward medical procedures. The experienced team at Maltman Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, performs many in-office treatments to overcome this problem. You could receive nebulizer therapy for breathing difficulties, stitches for an open wound, and corticosteroid or trigger point injections for musculoskeletal pain.

In-office treatments take many forms. If you attend a sick visit, you might need stitches for a cut, a dressing for a burn, or a splint for a sprain or strain. Routine immunizations, vitamin shots, and antibiotic injections are common in-office treatments.
In addition, Maltman Medical Center provides intravenous (IV) hydration therapy in-office. This involves having a needle in your arm that enables fluids and micronutrients to flow into your blood. It reverses dehydration, boosts vitamin and mineral levels, and increases overall well-being.
The Maltman Medical Center team offers several in-office treatments for conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist, arthritis, chronic pain, and overuse injuries. These treatments include:
Trigger points are knotted fibers in your muscles that can cause intense pain. A trigger point injection allows patients to get immediate relief from a local anesthetic and/or anti-inflammatory medication that reduces pain and inflammation.
Joint injections also offer relief for patients in pain. Like trigger point injections, joint injections contain local anesthetic medication and/or corticosteroids (powerful anti-inflammatories).
Some of the most common in-office treatments available at Maltman Medical Center include:
A nebulizer device delivers liquid medicine as a mist that you inhale. You might require in-office nebulization for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), severe asthma, or pneumonia. Your child might need to use a nebulizer if they have cystic fibrosis (an inherited lung disease).
Abscesses (pus-filled lumps on your skin) and cysts (fluid-filled lumps) sometimes require incision and drainage. Your provider makes a small cut and drains the pus or fluid out to relieve pressure and pain. Suspicious-looking skin lesions that could be cancerous are also treatable in-office.
