Cortisone Injection for Knee Pain
Our NYC orthopedic knee doctors perform non-surgical knee treatments
Cortisone shots are often used to relieve chronic knee pain, particularly if you have arthritis. Just because cortisone injections are a common non-surgical knee injury treatment, it’s still very important that you consult with an experienced knee doctor who knows how to perform these knee injury medical procedures and who can properly diagnose your medical condition.
Our New York orthopedic knee surgeons at IMC Bone Doc have years of experience dealing with complex medical issues involving knee pain and knee injuries. Overall, our doctors at Island Musculoskeletal Care have more than 100 years of combined medical experience. Rely on our board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons to determine if cortisone injections are the right approach for you. Schedule an appointment with us.
We often have immediate appointments available, including same day appointments at our seven New York offices. Best of all, you can often receive all your medical care at the same location.
Why should I receive cortisone shots for knee pain?
Cortisone is a naturally occurring steroid hormone released by the adrenal gland. Cortisone injections involve injecting corticosteroid medications containing cortisone into the knee or another affected area of the body. Cortisone shots do not directly relieve pain. Instead, cortisone injections often reduce inflammation, which can result in pain relief.
Cortisone injections are used to treat a wide range of knee conditions, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
If you’re suffering from serious knee pain, cortisone injections may be an effective treatment for your medical condition or an important part of a larger treatment plan. We can also discuss other pain management techniques for your knee, including gel injections and other advanced procedures.
