What is a Subacromial Injection?
This injection goes into your shoulder. It can help reduce your shoulder pain. We use it to treat many conditions. It’s used for adhesive capsulitis, rotator cuff tendonitis and impingement syndrome.
To start, you sit and expose your shoulder. Your skin is cleaned and numbed. The physician guides a needle under a part of your shoulder blade called the “acromion.” The needle goes between the acromion and the head of your upper arm bone (which is called the “humerus”). Medicine is injected into the joint. It bathes the joint. It will make your pain and swelling better.
After the injection, your skin is bandaged. Your Pain MH Houston healthcare provider will give you tips to follow as you heal.
You Have Options
We have seen that a number of clinics focus on one or two modalities for treatment. The problem is that pain is neurological and that means “it’s complex”. There are a wide variety of therapies, products, at-home activities, procedures and medicines that can be used and we believe there’s a place for all. Determining which (or combination thereof) is right for you is a process for you and your Pain MD to work together on.
