We guide you through several approaches to joint injections in our State-of-the-art training facility. Approaches include:

  • Glenohumeral joint injection
  • Subacromial bursa injection
  • AC joint injection
  • Medial/Lateral Epicondyle injection
  • Trochanteric bursa injection
  • Knee joint injection
  • Trigger Point injection- lumbar paraspinous muscles
  • Synovial fluid analysis
  • Viscosupplementation knee injection discussion
  • Ultrasound guided knee injection

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Tollefson will provide instruction for this program. He is a favorite instructor for GTI and is well liked by our attendees. In addition to his credentials, he has extensive experience in teaching other providerss in Pain Management techniques.

The Joint/Non-Spinal Injection lab will begin with didactic presentations covering the different medical conditions and treatment procedures that can be provided. You will learn specifically about the different Pain Management injection techniques used, the protocols, supplies and solutions, medications, side effects, precautions as well as patient selection criteria. Considerable time will be used to review diagnostic evaluation including physical exam, lab, or imaging analysis.

Extremity and Non-Spinal Injection Procedures and More

Prior to the Hands- On portion of the training, there will be an extensive Question and Answer session not only covering the topics presented, but also to discuss additional topics requested by the providers audience. This interactive experience is an integral part of the program. Our instructors will go over case studies and various academic problems for the group to solve.

The majority of the afternoon will be spent actually performing the various injection techniques. Providers will train on custom training models specifically designed to perform injection techniques and surgical procedures. Providers will receive extensive hands on training the entire afternoon and should leave the program feeling confident in their techniques.
