  Upper Limb Injection Procedures



Todd P. Stitik, MD, RMSK and President – New Jersey Society of PM&R

Todd Stitik is a Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

His primary clinical interests include musculoskeletal ultrasound, osteoarthritis and image-guided injection procedures.



Workshop Overview:

This webinar will review upper limb (i.e. shoulder region, elbow region, wrist/hand region) injection procedures. The webinar will be a combination of didactic material specific to these injection procedures, actual videotaped examples of injection procedures (many of which are picture-in picture – show the probe/patient/physician positioning in one picture and the actual real time ultrasound Image in the other picture) and a simulated demonstration on a scanning model of the injection procedure set ups, Time will be provided for question and answer including repeat demonstration of an injection set up. The participant will receive a certificate of attendance. Specific structures are listed below.


Shoulder region injection procedures to be covered:

  • Biceps tendon sheath
  • Biceps tendon
  • Musculocutaneous nerve block/hydrodissection
  • Subscapularis tendon
  • Subcoracoid bursa
  • Subcoracoid impingement injection
  • Outlet impingement injection/subacromial-subdeltoid bursa injection
  • AC joint injection
  • Supraspinarus/infraspinatus tendons, including diagnostic injections, PRP, and barbotage
  • Glenohumeral joint
  • Suprascapular nerve block and pulsef RFA at suprascapular fossa and spinoglenoid notch
