Intraarticular Shoulder Injection
The shoulder is prone to different kinds of injuries and inflammatory conditions. An intraarticular shoulder injection is a minimally invasive procedure to treat pain and improve shoulder movement. It may be performed with the help of ultrasound or fluoroscopic imaging which allows your physician to precisely target the intraarticular space.
Non-surgical Shoulder Treatments
Shoulder injuries can often be treated by non-surgical methods. Rest plays an important role in restoring shoulder health and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Ice causes vasoconstriction which minimizes the flow of blood and lymph fluids to the area thereby reducing inflammation and pain.
Ultrasound-Guided Shoulder Injections
Injection of pain medication in combination with a local anesthetic directly to the site of injury helps to relieve pain. The advanced imaging of the ultrasound provides high-resolution images that enable your physician to precisely locate the injections deep into the target tissue without harming surrounding tissues.
