Steroid Injections

Corticosteroid injections decrease inflammation and reduce immune response to help relieve localized pain. Cortisone is a synthetic metabolite of cortisol, a hormone naturally produced by the body that helps to reduce inflammation. Cortisone is most often injected into joints like the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand to control inflammation associated with conditions like arthritis and gout. The cortisone helps to control local inflammation in joints, tendons, and bursae (the fluid filled cushions separating bone and surrounding tissue).

Our orthopedic specialists will recommend steroid injections for pain management of conditions such as:

  • Bursitis
  • Gout
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Frozen Shoulder

Epidural Steroid Injections (ESIs)

Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are delivered specifically to the epidural space in the spine. The most common types of ESIs are lumber and cervical injections for lower back pain and neck pain. This minimally invasive procedure may be recommended by our spine specialists when non-invasive pain management treatments have not been effective. Epidural steroid injections are commonly used to treat spine conditions such as:

  • Lumbar Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Disc Herniations
  • Degenerative Disc Disease

Comparatively, minimally invasive surgery requires only a one-half to one-inch long incision and uses specializes retractors to separate tissue. Minimally invasive surgery may be recommended for treating conditions such as:

    • Lumbar Pain (Lower Back)
    • Cervical Pain (Neck)
    • Herniated Discs
    • Sciatica
    • Spinal Stenosis
    • Degenerative Disc Disease

    PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Injections

    PRP injections are an increasingly popular method of pain relief. Typically, plasma in the blood contains proteins that help support cell growth and healing. PRP injections begin by taking a sample of the patient’s own blood and centrifuging out the blood’s components so the platelet-rich plasma in separated. The separated plasma is then injected back into the patient to help stimulate healing and regeneration of healthy cells.

    PRP injections are especially popular among professional athletes, as they help heal acute injuries like strains and sprains or tendon injuries like tennis elbow, tendonitis, and sports-related knee pain. Platelet-rich plasma injections have been effective at treating pain in various areas of the body, including the elbow, wrist, shoulder, hip, and knees.
