Purpose

This aims of this study are: 1. To determine if particulate or non-particulate corticosteroid injections are more effective at treating pain from musculoskeletal pathologies of the hip, glenohumeral joint, biceps tendon, or subacromial/subdeltoid bursa at 2 weeks, 3 months, or 6 months. 2. To determine if there is a significantly different side effect profile between particulate and non-particulate corticosteroids when used for hip, glenohumeral joint, biceps tendon, or subacromial/subdeltoid bursa injections.
