A 59-year-old female asked:
Is it true you don't need as much pain killers when youve had a cortisone shot? Had one in my knee and im starting to feel that way lately

Cortisone in knee: Hello, yes, it does make some sense. Although it is not a pain reliever, per se, cortisone is a potent anti-inflammatory agent. Inflammation in the knee can result in pain, and the cortisone appears to be helping with this.
