Corticosteroid Injection


Corticosteroid injections are local injections of anti-inflammatory medication delivered to a joint or other body part. It is called Kenalog and has the advantage of avoiding oral medication as well as delivering a high concentration of medication to the affected area.

Short-term side effects can be possible lightening of the skin area, infection, local bleeding, soreness, or post-injection flare. Additionally, diabetics can see elevated blood sugars after the injection.

Long-term side effects can be tendon weakening or tendon rupture with chronic use.

Corticosteroid injections are useful for any orthopedic inflammatory process such as: arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and/or synovitis.
