Shoulder Joint Injection

Joint injections in the shoulder are often used for both therapeutic and diagnostic purposes.

When an anti-inflammatory medication such as a corticosteroid is injected into the joint space, it may quickly relieve discomfort and also, through time-release agents, provide rapid relief for more than six months. Immediate relief confirms that the pain is originating in the injected shoulder joint, allowing your physician to proceed with the correct course of treatment.
