Steroid injections help control inflammatory reactions around tendons, ligaments and in joints.
Physicians at Dedicated Orthopedic Center provide these injections to relieve pain and swelling from inflammation involving tendons, knees, shoulders, and hips that result from injuries and other inflammatory reactions. Your physician will fully explain how steroid injections can benefit your specific needs.
In most cases, the steroid in the injection will become effective in 2-3 days and may last for several weeks to months or may resolve the problem completely. The effectiveness for relief of pain and inflammation in steroid injections is not always predictable, however these injections often help significantly reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body.
