Other Peripheral Injections
Certain conditions such as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), carpal tunnel syndrome and other tendonopathies may benefit from localized injection of anesthetic and steroid. Also, certain peripheral neuropathies may respond to injections around the involved nerves. These injections are only performed if more conservative treatments fail and judicious amounts of medication are used. Typically, these procedures are performed in the office.
