A Safe, Simple Procedure That Relieves Pain In The Shoulder Caused By Arthritis, Injury Or Disorder
How is the Shoulder Injection Done?
- After the area of the shoulder that requires treatment is sterilized, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the tissue.
- The physician carefully guides a needle into the shoulder joint and may utilize a fluoroscope x-ray device and contrast dye to confirm the needle’s proper placement.
- With the needle in position, the physician injects a mixture of anesthetic and steroid medication, which helps reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and restore mobility and use.
When Can You Expect Pain Relief?
For many patients, extended pain relief begins within two to three days of the injection.
