Steroid injection into wrist tendonitis

By using a high frequency ultrasound probe the wrist is imaged by placing the probe transverse across dorsiflexed wrist. The median nerve and ulnar artery is identified. At the level of the distal wrist crease, the needle is passed into the skin superficial to the ulnar artery, penetrating the flexor retinaculum. The needle is advanced toward the median nerve. The steroid solution is injected just under the flexor retinaculum then retracted and redirected deeper to the ulnar side of the median nerve. This allows the median nerve to be completely surrounded with the steroid solution. [ 3 ]

For many people, back pain goes away on its own or with nonsurgical treatments. Epidural steroid injections shouldn't typically be used as a first-line therapy for back pain relief, but that doesn't mean they can't play a role in treating pain. But injections won't cure the underlying cause of back pain, and they provide only temporary relief. Unfortunately, in many cases, chronic back pain can't be cured, but must instead be managed, like other chronic conditions—and patients must have realistic expectations of what epidurals can do.

This is a rare complication that may occur if a small hole is made in the fibrous sac and does not close up after the needle puncture. These small holes are only made in less than 1% of epidural injections and usually heal on their own. The spinal fluid inside can leak out, and when severe, the brain loses the cushioning effect of the fluid, which causes a severe headache when you sit or stand. These types of headaches occur typically about 2-3 days after the procedure and are positional - they come on when you sit or stand and go away when you lie down. If you do develop a spinal headache, it is OK to treat yourself. As long as you do not feel ill and have no fever and the headache goes away when you lay down, you may treat yourself with 24 hours of bed rest with bathroom privileges while drinking plenty of fluids. This almost always works. If it does not, contact the radiologist who performed the procedure or your referring physician. A procedure (called an epidural blood patch) can be performed in the hospital that has a very high success rate in treating spinal headaches.
