What are subacromial injections?
A subacromial injection is administered into the shoulder, helping to decrease pain associated with several shoulder conditions including adhesive capsulitis, rotator cuff tendinosis, and impingement syndrome.
What can I expect from the subacromial injection procedure?
At the beginning of your treatment, a member of our orthopedic staff will cleanse and numb the administration site. A thin needle containing the subacromial solution is injected in between the acromion and the top of the upper arm bone. Patients can notice a gradual improvement of discomfort, pain, and swelling in their shoulder.
What can I expect following a subacromial injection?
Once the solution has been administered into the shoulder, the treatment site will be bandaged for protection. Our expert orthopedic staff will provide you with aftercare instructions to get the most out of this treatment and to prevent any possible complications.
Am I a good candidate for a subacromial injection?
A subacromial injection may be a fitting treatment option for you if you:
- Are experiencing prolonged pain, discomfort or swelling in one or both of your shoulders
- Have found that non-surgical treatment options such as physical therapy have not been effective to remedy your shoulder pain
