Subacromial Bursa Injection for Effective Arm and Shoulder Pain Relief

Don’t let arm, shoulder, and hand pain hinder your daily activities any longer.

Pain Relief

Subacromial bursa injections specifically target the inflamed bursa and surrounding tissues, providing effective relief from arm, shoulder, and hand pain. By injecting a combination of a local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication, our providers effectively reduce inflammation, providing immediate relief and improved functionality.


Subacromial bursa injections are minimally invasive and can often be performed on an outpatient basis. Our providers use ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance to accurately locate the affected area, ensuring the injections are precise and effective. The procedure involves the use of a small needle, resulting in minimal discomfort and a quick recovery time.

Improved Range
of Motion

In addition to pain relief, subacromial bursa injections can help improve your range of motion by reducing inflammation and alleviating stiffness in the arm and shoulder. This allows you to move more freely and perform daily activities without limitations or discomfort.


Our team of providers will evaluate your arm and shoulder pain, medical history, and specific symptoms to develop a personalized treatment plan. We understand that every individual is unique, and we prioritize your well-being throughout the entire process, ensuring you receive the best possible care.
