Bursa Injections

Bursa Injection for Joint Pain

Bursas occur where muscles and tendons insert into the bone and they are located in every joint of the body. Chronic pain from those bursas from previous injury can cause chronic pain and the treatment for that can be accomplished with injections usually with x-ray guidance or ultrasound guidance into the bursa injecting a small amount of local anesthetic and cortisone and a series of injections usually suffices to improve pain that has not improved with rest, pain medications, physical therapy, or other more conservative treatments.
