What are Corticosteroids injections

Corticosteroids are synthetic versions of hormones produced by the adrenal glands. Among these, Cortisone stands out as one of the earliest and most well-known Corticosteroids. However, there is a range of corticosteroids available, each suited for specific needs. When the steroids are injected into a joint or muscle, they reduce inflammation in that area, providing relief from pain, swelling, and stiffness. The effects of the injection may become noticeable within 48-72 hours, but some patients may experience immediate results. Typically, the injection’s effects can last between 3 to 6 months, and in some cases, up to a year.

Who can benefit from Corticosteroids injections

Steroids are commonly prescribed for individuals with inflammatory conditions and musculoskeletal pain, such as inflammatory arthritis. They are typically recommended by a doctor or specialist. Additionally, steroids can be used for degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and various soft tissue conditions that involve pain and/or inflammation. Depending on the specific joint involved, you may consider having your steroid injection guided by ultrasound, a matter that will be discussed with you before the injection.
