For patients with pain in their joints caused by bursitis, tendonitis or arthritis, an injection of the steroid triamcinolone can treat the inflammation, which in turn can reduce the pain. Local injections directly into the affected area can cause localized reductions in inflammation and relief from the pain. Such injections are easy to administer in-office same day and work with minimal side effects. In the cases of bursitis and tendonitis, a steroid injection to the affected area is sometimes enough to cure the condition.
Joint injections are administered using state of the art sonographic visualization for precise placement of the injection material.
Joint injections are frequently used to relieve pain in areas such as shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, wrists, and the sacrum area.
