Steroid Injections

Steroid Injections

When you suffer a sprain, break a bone or cut yourself, you will notice redness around the wound or injury. This kind of inflammation occurs when the body is trying to protect the area against foreign substances such as bacteria or viruses. However, inflammation can cause pain, swelling and other problems. An injection of corticosteroids can help. It has fewer side effects than steroids in pill form and can provide relief for up to a month or longer.
