Ligament injections can provide significant pain relief from inflammation associated with tendon and ligament injuries which most frequently occur around the elbow, knee and ankle. Sometimes it can be difficult to diagnose these injuries as they may not show up on standard imaging, and a thorough physical and discussion of your history may help identify the diagnosis.
During a ligament or peri-tendonous injection, your Center for Pain Management physician will locate the source of your pain.
Although extremely rare, risks may include bleeding; infection; allergic reaction to the medication; damage to tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints; and prolonged increase in pain. Your experienced pain management doctor at the Center for Pain Management will take all necessary precautions to try to prevent these complications.
