Steroid Injection for Joint Pain

Corticosteroid injections may help patients with joint pain due to injury, arthritis, or other inflammatory conditions.  These injections may help relieve pain and inflammation in your joint.  Typically, steroid injections consist of a corticosteroid medication and a local anethetic.  Because of possible side effects, repetitive injections in the same joint are usually not recommended.

Why Choose Steroid Injections for Joint Pain?

Steroid injections are done when a patient has an acute injury and/or inflammation in their joints such as knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, wrists, ankles, hands or feet.  For minor injuries, this may be all a patient will need.  If the injury or condition is more serious, we have other conservative interventions that may be more helpful.

Why Choose Vitality Medical Centers for My Joint Steroid Injection?

When doing joint injections, the providers at Vitality Medical Centers use imaging such as ultrasound or fluoroscopy to watch the procedure and make sure the material is placed in the correct spot.  Because of this, the likelihood of getting positive results is higher than “going in blind”.
