Bursa Injections

Bursa injections are a proven method for soothing inflammation and alleviating joint pain caused by bursitis. These injections contain powerful steroids like triamcinolone, which work to reduce swelling and discomfort in affected areas. By targeting the source of your pain, bursa injections offer a path to improved mobility and a better quality of life.

Who Needs a Bursa Injection?

Individuals experiencing pain from bursitis may find relief through steroid injections. Bursitis occurs when the fluid-filled sacs known as bursae, which cushion joints, become irritated due to repetitive use, accidents, or injuries. This irritation leads to swelling, decreased joint mobility, and discomfort. Whether you’re struggling with hip bursitis, shoulder bursitis, or another form of this condition, bursa injections could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Procedure Details

Our bursa injection procedure is designed to be quick, effective, and minimally invasive. Administered in-office by our experienced healthcare providers, the procedure typically takes less than 10 minutes. Using advanced techniques, such as ultrasound guidance for precision, we ensure that the injection reaches the inflamed bursa directly. Your comfort and safety are our top priorities throughout the process.

Risks/Benefits

While bursa injections offer significant benefits in terms of pain relief and improved joint function, it’s essential to understand the potential risks involved. While complications are rare, some individuals may experience temporary discomfort, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. Additionally, there is a slight risk of infection. However, our team takes every precaution to minimize these risks and ensure a positive outcome for every patient.

Recovery and Outlook

Following your bursa injection, you can expect some immediate pain relief thanks to the local anesthetic. However, it may take a few days for the steroid to take full effect and for swelling to diminish. During this time, it’s essential to follow your healthcare provider’s post-procedure instructions carefully. By avoiding strenuous activity, applying ice packs, and taking recommended pain relievers, you can support your body’s healing process and maximize the benefits of your injection.

Symptom Relief and Frequency

The duration of symptom relief provided by bursa injections can vary depending on factors such as the affected joint and individual response to treatment. While some patients experience relief for several months to a year following a single injection, others may require periodic injections to manage their symptoms effectively. Our team will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, ensuring that you receive the care and support you deserve.
