A steroid injection, sometimes referred to as a cortisone injection, may be offered at My Foot Doctor podiatry clinic to treat pain associated with inflammation. Inflammation can occur in a number of joints and soft tissues of the ankle and foot, resulting in pain, restricted movement, and impaired function. A steroid is not a painkiller directly, instead it is a powerful anti-inflammatory. The steroids ability to reduce inflammation means that they can reduce pain that is the result of inflammation.
Steroid Injection Benefits
- A reduction in inflammation and any associated pain
- Less side effects than oral steroids
- Steroid is given directly at the site of pain, where it is required
- Steroid injections help to preserve function and joint mobility
- The injection is administered quickly and easily by a podiatrist.
- More effective than other anti-inflammatories.
We also offer ostenil injections which contain hyaluronic acid, which is an ingredient that aids in the restoration of synovial joints that have been damaged by osteoarthritis; the big toe joint is a synovial joint. Synovial joints produce synovium, which is a liquid that helps to lubricate the joint allowing it to be mobile.
