Subacromial Injection

acromion, humerus
acromion

Overview
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 tendinosis and impingement syndrome.


Injection
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.


End of Procedure
After the injection, your skin is bandaged. Your
healthcare provider will give you tips to follow as
you heal.
