Ongoing knee pain can be debilitating. Not only can it reduce your mobility and make it difficult to accomplish ordinary daily tasks, but it can also cause you to limp, potentially leading to back problems and other musculoskeletal issues.
A cortisone shot may decrease inflammation and help reduce knee pain.
Cortisone shots in the knee may be ideal for patients who have:
- Post-traumatic arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Meniscus tear
- Ligament tear
- Tendon tear
Getting a cortisone shot in the knee is a simple process that only takes a few seconds. Your Alliance Orthopedics doctor will clean the area, numb the skin, then perform the injection. The process is very straightforward and fast!
