Temporary: Arthritis causes inflammation in the affected joint. Steroids will decrease the inflammation within the joint and improve pain. Once the steroids wear off, the symptoms will reoccur.

See a board certified orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Two approaches: There are two approaches to an epidural injection. The midline approach spreads steroids in a space that often spreads to the nerve roots at one or more levels. The lateral approach (transforaminal) bathes the medication over a specific nerve root. There may be some spread to other nerve roots as well.

Doctor suggests an injection of marcaine steroid into the hip joint to relieve pain. Is this reasonable?
Well: Technically no difference, they are probably the same. However, if the cortisone injection is not done under an x-ray machine (fluoroscopic c-arm) then it could be that the cortisone injection may be just that an injection into the muscle like a trigger point injection.

Can you get a Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) Injection and Cortisone Injection in the same knee during the same appointment?

However, if you have had an actual injection into the joint itself, then there is certainly the possibility of an infection occurring, however chances are still low. ...Read more
Does epidural steroid injections injected in the same place as the epidural analgesia?Have same risks?
In India inject in: Almost anything. I had a friend, travel to india, had a sore butt, was referred to someone and the next thing he knew, this guy (who knows what credentials) was sucking some kind of pus or serum out of his butt through a bamboo straw. He felt better. Scary stuff. All bets are off in other countries. Then again, we spend more than twice the amount of any country and r one of the unhappiest of them. ...Read more
