Corticosteroid injections may help patients with acute athletic injuries. These injections may help relieve pain and inflammation. Typically, steroid injections consist of a corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic. Because of possible side effects, repetitive injections in the same area are usually not recommended.
Why Choose Steroid Injections?
Steroid injections are often done when a patient has acute injuries that are causing pain and irritation/inflammation. For many patients, this may be all they will need. If the injury or condition is more serious, we have other conservative interventions that may be more helpful.

When doing injections, the providers at Vitality Medical Centers use imaging such as ultrasound or fluoroscopy to watch the procedure and make sure the material is placed in the correct spot. Because of this, the likelihood of getting positive results is higher than “going in blind”.
