Joint injections or aspirations (taking fluid out of a joint) are performed in an OPD or hospital setting. Either joint fluid is obtained (aspirated) and used for appropriate laboratory testing or medications are injected into the joint space. Drainage of a large joint effusion can provide pain relief and improved mobility. For injections, corticosteroids (such as methylprednisolone and triamcinolone) frequently are used. They are given to treat inflammatory joint conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, tendonitis, bursitis and osteoarthritis. Commonly injected joints include the knee, shoulder, ankle, elbow, wrist, base of the thumb, and small joints of the hands and feet.
