Joints represent the articulation between two bones, while bursas refer to the fluid filled sacs that provide cushion between tendons, joints, muscles and bone. Degenerative disease or arthritis can cause inflammation of the joints and bursa resulting in pain. Our physicians use image guidance under ultrasound or fluoroscopy to precisely target the injured tissue. By delivering medication accurately towards the problem area, inflammation and pain can be reduced or eliminated.
How It Helps
A joint/bursa injection can be effective in treating conditions including various forms of bursitis, tendonitis and osteoarthritis.
