Scapulothoracic Bursa Injection

Frequently Asked Questions about Scapulothoracic Bursa Injection

It is caused by an abnormal lesion or growth that can be found between the rib cage and the scapula. The joint located where the shoulder blade and the scapula normally slide along the chest wall as it moves is the scapulothoracic joint. The bursa is a tiny sac of liquid that is positioned between the two bones. It is filled with synovial fluid that allows the bones to move without scraping and adds a cushion around the joint.
