Produced by the adrenal gland, cortisone is a steroid released by the body in response to stress. Trusted since the early 1950s to relieve the inflammation and associated pain of sports injuries and musculoskeletal damage, injectable cortisone is a synthetic version of this effective, natural steroid. At Kayal Osteoarthritis & Orthobiologics Center, Dr. Robert A. Kayal, MD, FAAOS and his team use corticosteroid injection therapy to minimize inflammation, reduce pain, and restore function.
In some cases, corticosteroid injections help to bridge the gap between immobility and rehabilitation, allowing patients to participate in physical therapy when they could not previously tolerate it. In other cases, corticosteroid injections may permanently resolve an injury.
Treatment Uses for Corticosteroid Injections
While these injections are not a long-term solution for advanced osteoarthritis, they have proven effective for some arthritis patients. Dr. Kayal and his team also recommend corticosteroid injections for other common conditions, including:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Ligament injuries
- Trigger finger
- Tennis elbow
- Baker’s cyst
- Frozen shoulder
- Rotator cuff injury
- Chondromalacia patella / runner’s knee
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck tension
- Trigger points
- Low back pain
