What are Tendon Sheath Injections?

Tendon sheath steroid injections combine a powerful corticosteroid medication with a local anesthetic. The mixture is administered directly into an inflamed tendon sheath.

A tendon is a cord of strong fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone. It is what allows the muscle to bend and straighten a joint when it contracts. Most tendons are surrounded by a sheath or sleeve of synovial tissue. This tissue produces tiny quantities of fluid that lubricate the tendon and allow it to slide smoothly over the joint and work effectively.

In some inflammatory conditions, the synovial tissue becomes thickened and irritable, so that it produces too much fluid and causes pain. Injecting steroid medicine into the fluid within the tendon sheath can treat the inflammation, decreasing the pain and increasing the range of movement in that area.

Am I a candidate for Tendon Sheath Injections?

Tendon sheath injections are suggested when the tissues around a tendon are painful, swollen, or difficult to move. Tendon sheath injections on their own are unlikely to offer a cure but can be helpful alongside other treatments such as physical therapy.
