Understanding Cortisone Joint Injections

Steroid joint injections involve injecting a corticosteroid medication directly into a joint to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and improve joint mobility. These injections are commonly used to treat conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, or bursitis, providing targeted relief and enhancing the patient’s overall quality of life.

Determining the right time for joint injections

Before contemplating joint injections, it’s crucial to explore conventional approaches such as adequate rest, appropriate exercise, and a balanced diet. If you’ve exhausted these measures and still endure persistent joint pain, then joint injections become a viable consideration.

At Private Medical Clinic, we champion a patient-centric approach. Your path toward joint injections commences with a candid and transparent discussion with our skilled medical team.

Looking towards the bigger picture

Beyond the injection procedure itself, your active involvement in both pre- and post-injection care is of utmost importance. Ensuring that you are in optimal physical and mental condition before the procedure and diligently following the recommended rehabilitation plan can significantly enhance the benefits of joint injections.

At Private Medical Clinic, your well-being is our top priority, and we provide all-encompassing solutions for joint pain. Our seasoned medical team is committed to delivering personalised care aimed at assisting you in reclaiming your quality of life.

Steroid Joint Injections


Steroid injections are frequently the initial treatment choice for addressing joint issues. They are effective in swiftly reducing inflammation and alleviating pain within the joint. However, it’s important to be aware of certain considerations. Prolonged use of steroids may have adverse effects on joint cartilage and overall health. These injections are usually covered by insurance and provide relief for minor injuries, but their effects may last for approximately three months when dealing with chronic pain. It’s advisable to discuss the potential benefits and risks with your healthcare provider when considering cortisone shots as a treatment option.
