Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Not by much. While image-guided injection may improve shoulder range of motion (ROM), data are conflicting regarding pain and it does not improve function when compared to landmark-based injection for shoulder pain (SOR: B, systematic reviews of heterogeneous randomized and nonrandomized trials).
