Cortisone Shots - Can They Have Side Effects?

Cortisone Shots - Can They Have Side Effects?

Cortisone shots are injections that help relieve pain and inflammation. They are injected directly into the joints such as the ankle, wrist, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow . These injections are a combination of corticosteroids and local anaesthetics. These corticosteroids are similar to the hormones produced by the adrenal gland. Cortisone injections are also used to treat the carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, shoulder bursitis and plantar fasciitis. Though they do not cure the disease but they provide temporary relief. 

These injections may be slightly painful but provide relief in a day or two that lasts for a few weeks or months at a stretch. Hence, cortisone shots provide relief faster and have longer lasting results than other forms of anti-inflammatory medication. Another benefit of cortisone injections as compared to other drugs that need to be taken in through the mouth is that it avoids side effects of anti-inflammatory medication such as an upset stomach and systemic side effect of steroid etc. Cortisone injections can also be used to treat backaches and pain that radiates from the spine to an arm or leg. 

However, cortisone injections are associated with a number of risks. These include: 

  1. Infection in the joints 
  2. Thinning of tissue and skin around the injection site 
  3. Pain and inflammation in the joint 
  4. Weakening or rupturing of tendons 
  5. Hypopigemtation of skin around the injection site 
  6. Blood sugar spikes – this is seen mostly in diabetic patients 

In most cases, these side effects are short-lived. Cortisone may also be held responsible for the deterioration of cartilage inside a joint. For this reason, doctors do not advise cortisone injections to be had more than 3-4 times in a joint. The minimum interval between two cortisone injections must be 6 weeks. When used judiciously, cortisone injections can greatly improve the quality of a patient’s life. Hence it is very important to get treated only by a qualified doctor and to completely understand the pros and cons of using this form of treatment.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My mom 30 years old sometimes getting pain in her body and feet I want to know the solution.

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
My mom 30 years old sometimes getting pain in her body and feet I want to know the solution.
First of all, make sure that your mom gets time for some relaxation for 15 mins. In those 15 mins, let her lie on the bed with no noise around and make her close her eyes. Then you apply some almond oil softly with the tip of your fingers around both her eyes for 10 mins and on her feet for 5 mins. Make the room cooler with air conditioning or high speed fan! spread some fragrance by a good quality room freshener and tell your mom to sleep with her hands open facing the ceiling. After 15 mins she will feel rejuvenated with much less pain! she can then take hot tea with ginger and restart her work. The most important thing. Do not give or let others give her any stress or tension which can scare her and eventually that will reflect in her bodily pains and the cycle will go on! so, now you take care of your mom like a mom daily for 15 mins and see the difference.
