Shoulder Injections

The shoulder joint is complex and made up of four separate main joints as well as several tendons and bursa. The pain physician will determine exactly where the shoulder pain is coming from. Injections can be performed into the targeted region using pain medicine and steroid to reduce pain and inflammation. In some cases a specialized lubricant made from “rooster comb” may be used to give pain relief that potentially lasts 6-10 months.
