Steroid Injection

Nonoperative Management of Femoroacetabular Impingement: A Prospective Study.

A majority (82%) of adolescent patients presenting with FAI syndrome can be managed nonoperatively, with significant improvements in outcome scores at a mean follow-up of 2 years.

Clinical Relevance:
A nonoperative approach should be the first-line treatment for young active patients with symptomatic FAI syndrome.

One-year outcome of subacromial corticosteroid injection compared with manual physical therapy for the management of the unilateral shoulder impingement syndrome: a pragmatic randomized trial.

Both groups experienced significant improvement. The manual physical therapy group used less 1-year shoulder impingement syndrome-related health care resources than the Corticosteroid injections group.
