Intraarticular Steroid Injections

Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of your joints. The main symptoms are joint pain and stiffness due to inflammation and irritation. ​

Intraarticular joint injections are performed under fluoroscopic (x-ray imaging) or ultrasound guidance. A small needle is inserted into the joint where both steroid and local anesthetic are injected. This works by reducing the inflammation and irritation.
