Bursa Treatments

For safe and effective bursa injections in Atlanta, turn to the dedicated professionals at Spine Center Atlanta. We are a comprehensive spine care center offering state-of-the-art non-surgical treatments and effective solutions for complex spine problems including acute and chronic pain.

Bursas are synovial fluid-filled, fibrous sacs that are adjacent to joints in the body. Using a state-of-the-art C-Arm GE 9900 Elite Fluoroscopy with a laser guidance system, our back doctors can safely and accurately deliver local anesthesia (numbing medications) and anti-inflammatory steroid medications into a specific Bursa sac. This procedure can result in reduced inflammation and long-term pain relief. It can also be helpful in diagnosing the exact source of pain.

Anti-Inflammatories for Back Pain

Do you need anti-inflammatories for chronic back pain? If so, you may be a good candidate for a Bursa injection. A Bursa injection delivers anti-inflammatory medications directly into the affected bursa sac, resulting in reduced inflammation and long-term pain relief. The procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes and can be performed in the comfort of our fully-equipped spine center. If your pain subsides but begins to return weeks or months later, you may need additional injections. Up to four a year are possible.
