Joint Injections as part of the Diagnostic Process

To further ensure the accuracy of corticosteroid Joint Injections, a Physiatrist may perform a diagnostic injection to determine the specific area of pain. For diagnostic injections, a simple numbing agent (such a Licocaine) is used. If pain is temporarily relieved during this process, the locus of pain is more accurately identified.
