Bursa Injections

Bursa are fluid-filled sacs that provide a cushion between muscles and tendons during joint movement. Injuries and other conditions, like arthritis and bursitis, can cause inflammation of the bursa, resulting in pain. If you have joint pain caused by inflammation or swelling of the bursa, one injection treatment option is a bursa injection. Our medical team at Medici Medical Arts can identify the cause of chronic pain, including swollen or inflamed bursa.

Bursa injections use a local anesthetic and steroid to offer immediate and long-term relief for joint pain. The injections are carefully placed into the inflamed bursa. Imaging through x-rays is often used to direct the placement of the injection to the correct area. The local anesthetic in the injection can offer immediate pain relief while the steroids combat and relieve inflammation. The steroid interaction can require a few days to dissipate the inflammation but can offer long-term pain relief.

Who is a Good Candidate for Bursa Injections?

Injuries and inflammatory diseases can irritate and inflame the bursa in the joints. Our medical team will determine whether or not a swollen bursa is contributing to joint pain and if a bursa injection could be included in your treatment plan. Bursa injections can offer permanent or long-term relief for some patients, especially when combined with other treatments. If the inflammation to the bursa returns, additional injections may be performed every few months to sustain pain relief.

Joint pain is a common issue and is often caused or increased by some type of inflammation. If a swollen or inflamed bursa is contributing to your joint pain, a bursa injection may be recommended as part of your treatment plan. Contact Medici Medical Arts today to schedule your initial consultation, and learn more about our treatment options, including bursa injections. We have have different locations in the greater Atlanta area for your convenience.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
