Bursitis Pain Relief
If you are suffering from Bursitis pain and other treatments have failed to bring relief, you may be a candidate for a bursa injection that can also treat trochanteric bursitis and ischial bursitis. A bursa injection is an advanced interventional sport treatment that can be used to reduce inflammation in the bursa sacs, the fluid-filled fibrous sacs that are adjacent to joints in the body. The goal of the treatment is to produce long-term pain relief.
A bursa injection is an outpatient procedure that involves injecting a local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication into the bursa sac, under the guidance of Fluoroscopy. The procedure itself takes between ten to twenty minutes to complete and results in minimal downtime for the patient.
