Corticosteroids are powerful anti-inflammatory medications.
Use of cortisone injections in the treatment of muscle and joint inflammatory reactions is becoming increasingly popular.
Joint injections are technically more difficult to perform, also can be of great benefit in the patient's recovery.
Cortisone injections can offer fast-acting relief of inflamed muscles, joints, tendons, and bursa.
Complications are rare but may include infection and bleeding.
When administered by an expert, cortisone injections offer significant pain relief from inflammation with only minimal discomfort.
