Intra-articular injections

Product of reference

The product we use is 20 mg of triamcinolone acetonide. This is two cc of a 10 mg/cc solution.

Therapists who prefer another type of corticosteroid should always administer the equivalent dose. (Triamcinolone acetonide is five times as strong as hydrocortisone.)
