    Needle Size for shoulder injection

    Hey guys

    I have ordered TB-500/BCP-157 combo for some shoulder inflammation issues.

    I have two different syringes and not sure which would be better - direct injection into the shoulder

    1) 28G 1/2" or
    2) 30G 5/16"

    As I understand 30G would be thinner, but (slightly) longer.

    Thoughts?

    The 28g is 1/2" (according to what you tell us). 1/2" = 8/16"

    If the 30g is indeed 5/16" it is shorter, not longer. I am guessing you meant 5/8" which is 10/16" (?)

    For reference, I just put a 23g 1" in my delt about 10 hrs ago, although neither of those is required for every injection site, every compound, every individual.

    You are correct btw ... the 30g IS thinner than the 28g. Actual pin sizes and gauges run opposite to each other. An 18g is WAY thicker than a 31g, for instance.

    With compounds I look at the carrier..the thinner the smaller pin you can use..but as length goes..I use 1 1/2 for glutes..1 for everything else..

    I don’t like shoulder injections. But 25x1 is good . Or a slin pin

    Lol. I know most who use a bigger syringe use a 25 or 27g, and most for whom a 1cc will suffice take advantage of Bernoulli's Principle and use still smaller pins. I mostly just shoot oils a little over 1cc, hence a 3cc for me. I do worry that increasing scar tissue makes pursuing our aberrant hobby increasingly difficult as the years go on. I guess pin size has something to do with scar tissue, but I think needle shake does too. In my case, my old shoulders can't reach all my injection sites as gracefully as I'd like. Oil passes through a 23g more easily than through a smaller pin, hence less shake, hence (maybe) less eventual scar tissue ... and all this just from my perspective, btw.

    Water based therapies through the smallest needle possible. Intra-fat makes no difference seeing as how it isn't a long lasting depot, so you don't have to worry about depth. Sub-q if you'd like.

    The smaller the needle, the better....for BPC/TB. I usually do slin pins for those types of things.

    I use 29g 1/2" slin pins for everything. I don't inject glutes but can get delts, tris, chest and quads IM no problem.

    you guys above pretty much covered it

    but imo whatever you do do not buy tuber syringes

    they are absolutely garbage

    wastes a bunch of the product in the tip everytime & plus ive had them explode

    by that I mean youll be pushing the plunger then all of a sudden the needle separates

    then all the steroids are spattered everywhere

    Guys

    Thanks, but still not sure I got the answer I was looking for.

    Injecting Peptides (TB/BCP) into my shoulder. I have 2 different size syringes

    28G which is 12MM in length
    30G which is 8MM in length

    I know 30G is thinner and easier to go in. But is 8MM to short. Do I need that extra 4MM to penetrate deeper into skin?

    Does that make sense? I have both types, just not sure which to use/which would be better for where I'm injecting

    1.5" 25 gauge for every pin. I don't pin chest, biceps, triceps, or lats. I enjoy pinning delts. I reserve middle and front delts for pinning. Not comfortable with rear delt pins. Its a range of motion issue. I bury the pin. I was taught many years ago that I'm looking to go deep into the muscle.
    Guys have expressed concern with depth pinning delts with 1.5" pin. Like they are going to hit bone? Has not been an issue for me.
    Geogroup please check in!!

    25g 1" works for me. I also use the same for pinning pecs or tris.

    I know they use 1" usually for inoculations into the delt even for old grannies. Do you stick that 1 1/2" all the way in?

    This is all I do, I switch between delts. Because I’m the only one who pins me and I can’t aspirate good on my ass. I use a 25g 1” or 1.5.
