Comparative Effectiveness of Particulate Versus Nonparticulate Steroid Injections for Musculoskeletal Conditions
This aims of this study are:
1. To determine if particulate or non-particulate corticosteroid injections are more
effective at treating pain from musculoskeletal pathologies of the hip, glenohumeral
joint, biceps tendon, or subacromial/subdeltoid bursa at 2 weeks, 3 months, or 6 months.
2. To determine if there is a significantly different side effect profile between
particulate and non-particulate corticosteroids when used for hip, glenohumeral joint,
biceps tendon, or subacromial/subdeltoid bursa injections.
