Potentially: Cortisone shots are frequently used to help sciatica due to pinched nerves. Actual swelling in the limb however is not a part of nerve pain and is more likely to be due to a vascular problem, infection, or trauma to the limb itself. I recommend having your md look at the knee before having steroid infections done.S.

Yes: However the the cortisone injection is to your knee or the pinched nerve? Either way it should help. If you are getting short term pain relief may want to see a specialist for more thorough evaluation.
