Cortisone Injections

Cortisone and steroid are interchangeable terms for an anti-inflammatory that is naturally produced in your body. Injectable forms of cortisone are used to provide fast reductions in pain, swelling, and inflammation, which can be used for short-term control of joint discomfort.

One injection typically has few negative consequences, but it is not recommended to have several injections to the same area over a short period of time. We prefer to wait a minimum of 3-6 months between cortisone injections.
