A safe and simple outpatient procedure that relieves pain in the shoulder and arm caused by arthritis, injury or disorder.
- 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 and relieve pain.
- For many patients, extended pain relief begins within two to three days of the injection.
