Advanced Workshop of Joint Puncture and Soft Tissue Injections | Sydney

The Advanced Workshop of Joint Puncture and Soft Tissue Injections will teach you helpful techniques in the diagnosis and therapy of various musculoskeletal conditions. The procedures are most often used to reduce inflammation, provide pain relief and alleviate stiffness in tendons, muscles and joints of the shoulder, knee, or hip. The program thus addresses a highly sought-after service of the ageing population and gives you the opportunity to practise on cadavers.

This workshop is for general practitioners only and assumes no prior knowledge or specific training in joint puncture or soft tissue injecting.

The session covers:

  • Principles of joint puncture
  • Principles of soft tissue injections
  • Joint anatomy and safe treatment
  • Local anaesthesia and safe practices
  • Specific conditions that require joint puncture and soft tissue injections


The practical workshop is held on Friday evenings (6.00pm - 9.15pm) to meet the needs of time-poor medical professionals. The workshop includes hands-on performance on cadavers under the guidance of an experienced medical practitioner who specialises in the field.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
