Anti-Inflammatory Injections

A cortisone steroid (corticosteroid) is an anti-inflammatory medication used to treat inflamed muscles, joints, and tendons. At Lewis Pain & Physical Medicine, Dr. Jerry Lewis provides cortisone steroid injections for patients suffering from inflammation in their the body. They work by reducing inflammation in the affected area, and are typically a temporary form of pain relief to allow the patient to complete physical therapy or postpone surgery. They are also most often done in tangent with another form of treatment which will vary depending on the cause of the inflammation.

Ideal Candidates

There are multiple conditions that can cause inflammation, including osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis. In some cases, corticosteroid injections can be used to help provide relief from an injury or an overused joint, muscle, or tendon. In many instances, corticosteroid injections do not treat the condition that is causing inflammation — instead they are used to help manage both pain and inflammation.

What to Expect From Procedure

Dr. Lewis performs injections as an inpatient procedure and in some cases, he may apply a topical anesthetic. Some areas being treated may require the use of an ultrasound so that Dr. Lewis can have a better view of the area. He will then insert the needle into the area of inflammation and inject the steroid.

Following the injections, patients may be observed for a short amount of time so we can evaluate the success of the procedure. If patients experience any tenderness around to the injection area they can use ice to treat it. The lasting effects of injections may vary depending on the patient and the injected area.

Follow-up injections can be administered to help maintain results, but typically no more than three a year can be performed. Dr. Lewis will consult with you about subsequent treatments that can help you maintain your results.

No matter the cause, joint, muscle, and tendon inflammation can be painful and affect movement. For many individuals, corticosteroid injections are a good option for reducing inflammation and alleviating pain. At Lewis Pain & Physical Medicine, Dr. Jerry Lewis can work with you to create an effective treatment plan that fits your needs.
