How long does relief from cortisone injection last before I need another in my wrist?

How long does relief from cortisone injection last before I need another in my wrist?

Varies: It depends on the injury or problem. Sometimes a shot will be a one-time fix. Other times it might only last a short while. I generally don't advocate for repeated steroid shots anyway. For joint issues, I recommend you look up Prolotherapy or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Splints, braces, physical therapy, or supplements such as turmeric, glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin, etc, may also help joints. ...Read more

It may not make it: Heal but can reduce the irritation that is present and is getting in the way of the healing process and potentially reduce symptoms. If oneis improving then an injection may not be needed. Supplements have not been shown to be beneficial. Splnts may help if they are the right ones. Often we use thte workd heal to mean feel better but the two things may not be concurrent. ...Read more

Hyper sensitive skin on whole body for 3 months following cortisone injection in leg. Blood work normal. Skin hurt even if not in contact with cloths?

Anxiety: Please modify our medication taking. I suggest you take celexa, (citalopram) if you do not take it yet, starting with 10 mg twice a day and increase to 20 mg twice per day. Celexa (citalopram) is very good on anxiety control and improving pain tolerance. By the way, you should stop short acting narcotics. The more narcotics use, the more problem will be. ...Read more

Time span for ache from cortisone injection ,in wrist, for arthritis, to disappear? And when will I know if it helped? (Had it done yesterday 9/3/15)

Time span for ache from cortisone injection ,in wrist, for arthritis, to disappear? And when will I know if it helped? (Had it done yesterday 9/3/15)

Takes a few days: Cortizone (hydrocortisone) injections take a few days to start to work. By two weeks one should know if it has worked and the arthritis pain reduced. At times there is actually an initial increase in pain until the inflammation begins to subside. As long as there is no sign of infection (redness, warmth, fever, a great change in pain) then usually rest and ice can be helpful for the soreness. ...Read more

What do you advise if i had a cortisone injection in my knee on wednesdayhow long til my knee will feel better ?

Relief by day 3-5: Cortisone injections performed in the mild to moderately arthritic knee should provide relief by days 3-5 if the injections are to work at all. Each knee and degree of damage is different, and the response to an injection will also be different. The injections are aimed at decreasing the pain and swelling due to the inflammation and synovitis that occurs secondary to the underlying arthritis. ...Read more
