Joint and Tendon Injections
Intra and peri-articular and soft-tissue injections to relieve pain and inflammation and improve mobility have been an important adjunct for the management of musculoskeletal pathology for more than 60 years.
Injections can provide diagnostic information and are commonly used to control pain during rehabilitation from injuries such as rotator cuff syndrome and lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). They are the preferred and definitive treatment for soft-tissue conditions such as de Quervain tenosynovitis and trochanteric bursitis. Intra-articular steroid injection provides pain relief in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
As with any procedure, success depends on knowing the right diagnosis (who to inject), performing the correct procedure (how to inject), and using the most appropriate pharmacologic or biologic agent (what to inject).
