Triangle Orthopaedics maintains a progressive approach to medicine, constantly adapting the most innovative medical techniques. Cortisone injections are one of many treatments offered at Triangle Orthopaedics. The description below is intended to educate you on the techniques and science behind these remedies.
Cortisone injections are commonly recommended and administered to patients suffering from joint pain. Cortisone, a steroid medication, decreases inflammation and in turn reduces pain. By pinpointing the exact area of pain and injecting a high concentration of cortisone, the medication may reach the source of inflammation quickly and bring about relief within two or three days. Side effects and associated risks of this treatment remain very minimal.
Orthopaedists frequently utilize cortisone injections to treat conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis and bursitis. Due to the minimal side effects and relatively long lasting effect, many patients prefer cortisone injections as opposed to oral anti-inflammatory medications. Triangle Orthopaedics providers demonstrate years of experience administering this type of injection. If you have persistent joint pain, please do not hesitate to contact us.
