Intra Articular Injection

Intra Articular Injection Surgery in India


  • Intraarticular Injection is a procedure where the affected joint is injected with a hypodermic needle, through which medications are delivered.

  • Intraarticular Injection is an injection given in a joint to treat conditions like gout, tendinitis, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, psoriatic arthritis and sometimes osteoarthritis.

  • This procedure is also used to remove extra fluid from the joint.

  • The injection usually contains corticosteroids which reduce inflammation. 

Possible Risks & Side Effects:

  1. Most people have steroid injections without any side effects. They can be a little uncomfortable at the time of injection but many people find that they are not as bad as they had feared. Occasionally people notice a flare-up in their joint pain within the first 24 hours after injection. This usually settles by itself within a couple of days, but taking simple painkillers like paracetamol will help.

  2. Injections can occasionally cause some changes in the colour of the skin at the injection site.



  • It is not advisable to have multiple injections in the same site or joint.

  • In case of any known allergy to the medication, the injection should not be given. It should also be avoided if there is an infection in or around the joint.
