Cortisone Injections for Rehabilitation
Cortisone injections make up a very important part of the treatment of joint injuries including shoulder, knee, ankle, elbow, hip, spine and wrist injuries. In combination with an active rehabilitation program, they may significantly reduce the need for surgery with many impingement syndromes.
Cortisone injections are useful in the treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions, particularly those of acute inflammation (such as acute bursitis), and degenerative joint and tendon conditions.
Cortisone injections should only be performed by a licensed, fully certified and extensively trained medical physician with an accurate diagnosis obtained from a detailed history and clinical examination.
