Joint Steroid Injection

A joint steroid injection is an injection of localized anesthetic to block the pain signal from that nerve.  We focus on joint steroid injections in the hip, shoulder, hand and foot joints. Corticosteroid (steroid) injections are used to reduce local joint inflammation. Steroids are synthetic drugs which act like the natural hormone cortisol. Intraarticular steroid injections are injected directly into an affected joint. The goal of a local, intraarticular steroid injection is to improve joint function while reducing inflammation.
