Steroid( Cortisone) Injection


 

A steroid injection is a procedure that can be done in the office to treat the pain and swelling associated with many common upper extremity conditions, including arthritis and tendinitis. Your doctor will determine if you are an appropriate candidate for receiving a steroid injection. If so, the injection given is a combination of a short acting local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and a longer acting anti-inflammatory medication (corticosteroid). Cortisone injections may provide long term or temporary relief depending on the condition being treated.
