Chronic pain affects your ability to move naturally and comfortably. For qualified patients, bursa injections help soothe joint pain caused by arthritis, bursitis, and other inflammatory diseases.
The bursae are gel-filled sacs that help muscles and tendons glide smoothly over bones. These sacs are found in the shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, ankles, and other joints in the body. When bursae becomes swollen, the patient experiences joint pain in that area.
Performed as an outpatient procedure, bursa injections involve having a steroid medication injected into the joint to reduce the inflammation and relieve your pain.
During bursa injections, the area is first numbed with a local anesthetic. The bursa is then injected with a steroid/anesthetic mixture. This relieves your pain and inflammation over time to ensure lasting results.
Patients should start to notice results about 2-3 days after the treatment as the steroid begins to reduce the inflammation. Results from bursa injections can last for months depending on the patient and the area being treated.
Say no to chronic pain! If you have pain and inflammation in your knees or ankles, schedule an appointment with Dr. Usman Ahmad, our board certified physiatrist for diagnosis and treatment. Bursa injections effectively reduce inflammation in the bursae, or gel-filled sacs in the joints, and alleviate your pain.
