What are Steroids?

Steroids (short for corticosteroids) are medications that closely resemble cortisol, a hormone that your adrenal glands produce naturally. Corticosteroids are different from the male hormone-related steroid compounds that some athletes abuse.

Steroids work by decreasing inflammation and are used to treat a variety
of painful inflammatory diseases and conditions.

The Expected Benefits of Steroid Injections

The purpose of a steroid injection is to reduce inflammation and pain which will lead to increased mobility and function. This can happen quickly after the injection.

Local steroid injections are generally well-tolerated by the body and are much less likely to result in any serious side effects in comparison to oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen.

Success Rates

Steroid injections work well in the majority of cases. Success rates will vary depending on the condition being treated.

Ultrasound guided injections, as opposed to "blind' injections, ensure the site of the injury is closely targeted with the steroid. This reduces the need for repeat injections.
