Steroid Injections

Cortisone is a type of steroid. It can greatly reduce inflammation (swelling, redness, and irritation) . Injectable cortisone is unlike the steroids  athletes take. It won’t make you gain weight or get bigger muscles. Since it’s injected into an inflamed region and not taken as a pill, little of it goes beyond that region. With oral steroids, side effects can occur with long term use. But with an injection for localized inflammation, this is not likely to happen. Celestone is a long acting steroid that I use in my office. It has the added benefit of almost never causing skin depigmentation or subcutaneous fat atrophy.
