Pain treatment with injections

One of the most common pain management injections is called an epidural steroid injection. This injection is common for lower back pain but may also help with upper back and neck pain.

Foot and ankle pain can be treated in the similar way. A steroid injection or cortisone shot may reduce swelling, stiffness and pain in your foot and ankle. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment. In fact steroid acts like the natural hormones that your body makes to stop inflammation. 

After injection you may experiece discomfort. Usually it is temporary and could last up to 48 hours. It is an aggravation of the inflammation that the injection was meant to treat. A cold compress and rest can usually relieve this pain, and over-the-counter painkillers can help.
