Steroid injections are typically less specifically targeted than nerve blocks, and are very effective for people with back, hip, and knee pain. One of the most common steroid agents used in these injections is cortisone, which helps to relieve inflammation and pain around the body. This procedure is less invasive than others and patients can expect the entire process to take around an hour with a short amount of recovery time.
As the injected medication diffuses throughout the body after a few days, patients can expect to feel soreness at the injection site. This procedure can have a pain-relieving effect on the body for weeks to years, depending on how the body reacts.
