Cortisone Joint Injections

With Action Spine & Joint in Nashville

Joint Injections for Pain Relief

At Action Spine & Joint in Nashville, we offer joint injections as a form of treatment to alleviate pain and improve mobility. Two common types of joint injections we provide are cortisone joint injections, also known as steroid injections or steroid shots. Our experienced team will guide you through the options and help you make an informed decision based on your preferences and needs. Both of these therapies are minimally invasive and have proven positive results backed by extensive research and clinical experience. If you are seeking effective pain relief and improved joint function, Action Spine & Joint is here to help.

Cortisone Joint Injections: Immediate Relief

Cortisone joint injections involve the injection of a corticosteroid, typically combined with an anesthetic, directly into the affected joint. This treatment offers immediate pain relief and is commonly chosen by patients in Forest Hills, Bellevue, The Nations, and other areas due to its quick and effective results. It’s important to note that cortisone is a synthetic version of cortisol, a naturally occurring substance in the body that regulates blood pressure, sugar levels, metabolism, and inflammation. By mimicking cortisol, cortisone injections help manage joint pain and inflammation. However, it’s essential to understand that these injections do not address the underlying cause of the pain but provide temporary relief. Conditions such as arthritis or gout have no known cure, and cortisone injections primarily focus on symptom management. Patients in Oak Hill, Sylvan Park, and beyond can rely on cortisone joint injections to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain associated with joint conditions.

How Often Do I Need A Cortisone Joint Injection?

It’s common for patients to initially express concerns about cortisone injections, as they fear the potential negative side effects often associated with steroids. However, cortisone injections are not the same as anabolic steroids like testosterone and do not cause weight gain, facial redness, or mood swings. These injections have been widely used for many years and are recognized for their benefits. By reducing joint inflammation, cortisone shots alleviate pain and improve joint function. The frequency of cortisone injections can vary depending on the patient and the specific condition being treated. They can be administered as a single injection or given regularly for ongoing management. Common conditions that respond well to cortisone injections include soft tissue inflammation (bursitis or tendonitis), osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Our team at Action Spine & Joint will determine the most suitable treatment plan, often combining injection therapy with other medications or dietary changes for maximum benefit.

What Are Benefits and Results of Cortison?

The effects of cortisone joint injections typically last between six weeks and six months, providing patients with an extended period of pain relief. Many individuals strategically plan their injections to postpone or even avoid surgery indefinitely. By managing pain effectively, cortisone injections allow patients to delay costly and time-consuming surgical procedures like knee replacements. In some cases, cortisone injections are also used for diagnostic purposes. If the injection successfully relieves pain in a specific area, it indicates that the pain originates from that localized area. However, if the pain persists, it suggests a potential neurological or nervous system issue. Cortisone joint injections offer significant benefits, minimal risks, and virtually no side effects. While they do not provide a cure for every patient, they are successful in managing pain and improving quality of life. Rehabilitation services that focus on range of motion, flexibility, and strength can complement the effects of cortisone injections.

My sciatica was bothering me so bad it was making it very difficult to live a normal life, at least to move normally without pretty bad pain. It was limiting the things I could do and even making it hard to do my job at times. After About three months of going to Action, Spine and Joint regularly (2 to 3 times weekly), the pain is now gone! The staff there is super friendly and accommodating and the Dr. Casey and Dr. Josh are amazing! I see why they were voted the Best Chiropractic office in Nashville for many years. Would highly recommend them!

I came to Action with significant disc compression between L5 & S1, with steady pain 8/10 and stabs way past 10. I went from not being able to walk the day after my injury to able to walk without significant pain in less than a week. Dr. Bearden & Dr. Joshua are both experts at their craft, they listened when I told them what was working, what wasn't, and what I could afford, and they worked with me to get me on a treatment plan that has helped me regain mobility & reduce pain in a short amount of time. The front of house staff is helpful, kind & generally lovely. If you're thinking about chiropractic care, look mo further than Action!

After being involved in an auto accident I had major pain to my lower back from a bulged disk, and other joint pains. The pain was constant and went on for months. Due to a pinched nerve and misalignment. After orthopedic appointments and MRIs my Dr. Referred me to these guys for help. I have noticed a major improvement since my first visit and feeling better and better every time I go. I have more energy, less pain, I am able to do things without the pain I was feeling before without the need for surgery! My blood psi is back to normal, and much more! I would highly recommend Action Spine and Joint to anyone needing to alleviate pain in their body! The physical therapy and chiropractic care is on point! And everyone is very friendly and professional.

Love Dr. Josh and Dr. Casey. When I have needed adjustment, they have always straightened me out! I especially appreciate their approach to post-injury care. They carefully assess to rule out fractures or other serious complications, including using X ray on site if needed, before performing a chiropractic adjustment. They also have excellent therapists on staff and a diverse array of equipment that can help correct posture, relieve inflammation, treat pain, and promote healing. My family and I have trusted them for years.
