Shoulder Injection : Frequently Asked Questions
Shoulder injections are commonly used to treat rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, and other conditions causing shoulder pain and inflammation.
Shoulder injections can provide temporary relief from pain and inflammation and can help improve shoulder mobility. Depending on the severity of the condition, the effects of the injection may last for weeks or months.
The injection is usually performed using a local anesthetic to numb the area. The patient lies on their side with the affected shoulder facing upward and the physician inserts a needle into the shoulder joint. The medication is then injected directly into the joint.
The risks associated with shoulder injections are generally minimal. Possible side effects can include soreness and swelling at the injection site, but these should subside within a few days.
Full recovery from a shoulder injection typically takes 1-2 days. During this time, it is important to rest the shoulder and avoid strenuous physical activity.
The frequency of shoulder injections depends on the severity of the condition. Generally speaking, shoulder injections can be done every 3-4 months. However, it is best to consult a doctor for specific advice on the ideal frequency for your situation.
