My mother was diagnosed with reactive synovitis of ankle and under steroid therapy. Physiotherapy will play any role in treating this condition thanx!

Synovitis limited 2- -a single joint as describe should be treated by local joint injections. My theory was no oral steroids. This exposes the entire body to the side effects of steroids, including avascular necrosis of the hip &/or shoulders, as well as osteoporosis. This is common in long term use as well as high dose bursts, but burst treatment is much safer. .
