At Mesa Health & Aesthetics, we offer Intra-articular or Bursa Injections with Corticosteroid to treat pain and inflammation. These injections are used for a variety of conditions, including joint and tendonitis pathology, as well as soft tissue injury. The Corticosteroid that is injected into the joint or bursa is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication that can provide immediate relief from pain and swelling. The medication works by reducing inflammation in the joint or bursa, which allows it to move more freely. It also helps reduce stiffness associated with arthritis. The injection can be used both to treat existing conditions and to prevent further damage due to overuse injuries or chronic wear and tear.
At Mesa Health & Aesthetics, our board-certified providers have extensive experience in performing Intra-articular or Bursa Injections with Corticosteroid. Our practitioners will assess your condition and discuss the risks and potential benefits of treatment with you before administering the injection. The procedure is generally safe, but there may be some side effects associated with it, such as temporary discomfort at the injection site or pain that increases for a few days after the injection. It’s important to understand these risks before undergoing any type of medical procedure, which is why we always ensure that our patients are fully informed about their options and feel comfortable with their decision before proceeding.
Intra-articular or Bursa Injections with Corticosteroid can offer pain relief and improved mobility almost immediately after administration. The effects of treatment can last up to several months before they need to be repeated again. Ultimately, however, the longevity of treatment depends on how well you take care of your joint or bursa afterwards. It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions for rehabilitation and to avoid activities that might cause further injury or wear and tear on the joint.
