Chronic joint pain affects your everyday life. It can be difficult to move around naturally and comfortably.
Also called cortisone shots, corticosteroid injections are commonly used to relieve pain and inflammation in the joints, often in the knee, shoulder, spine, hip, ankle, and hands. These injections may be used to treat inflammation from arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, gout, and back pain.
During treatment with corticosteroid injections, ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance may be used to watch the needle’s guidance to make sure the right area is treated. The medication used relieves the pain and inflammation over time to ensure lasting results.
Patients should begin to notice relief about 48 hours after the treatment and results can last for several months depending on the patient and the area to be treated.

If you have pain and inflammation in your shoulder, back, hip, knee, hands, or feet, schedule an appointment with Dr. Usman Ahmad, our board certified physiatrist for diagnosis and treatment.
