Our spine doctors use cortisone injection as a safe and effective pain relief treatment for many orthopedic problems, including tendonitis, arthritis, and bursitis. As an anti-inflammatory medication, cortisone works by preventing collagen production in the joints. Cortisone injection provides immediate relief from pain that can last for several months. The doctor can also use this treatment for inflammation in a specific tendon or joint or with widespread inflammation throughout your body. These include rheumatoid arthritis, allergic reactions, asthma, frozen shoulder osteoarthritis, and gout that might affect your joints. As experts in pain management and pain control, our physicians offer a comprehensive, personalized, and time-tested treatment plan that focuses on your specific level of pain.

Cortisone Injections in NYC (Downtown Brooklyn & Lower Manhattan)
Cortisone injections are used to treat inflammation and thus reduce pain. These problems could occur anywhere in the body, and the cortisone injections are targeted at the problem area. Since the use of cortisone for reducing inflammation was discovered in 1951, it has now become a common form of treatment.

Part of the reason for its widespread use is that cortisone injections rarely have any adverse side effects. Even so, it is still mandatory that an individual get an X-ray and possibly an MRI scan to prove that the underlying cause of pain is inflammation. When all recommended steps are followed, there are usually no adverse side-effects, but there are still exceptions.

What is a cortisone injection?
Elbow Pain
Cortisone injections are injections used for treating many orthopedic problems, including tendonitis, arthritis, and bursitis. To clear the air, studies show that many people mistake cortisone to be a pain killer. It is not. The injection is just an anti-inflammatory medication, not a painkiller.

However, pain often subsides by reducing inflammation. Cortisone is known to be a synthetic version of cortisol. Cortisol is a steroid produced in the adrenal gland and released into the bloodstream in response to easing stress. Cortisone works like cortisol, but it just has a higher strength than cortisol. Side effects of using cortisone tend to be rare and minor. Thus Cortisone injections are very safe to perform.
