For patients with pain in their joints caused by bursitis, tendonitis or arthritis, an injection of the steroid cortisone can treat the inflammation which in turn can reduce the pain. Local injections directly into the affected area can cause localized reductions in inflammation and temporary relief from the pain. Such injections are easy to administer and work with minimal side effects. In the cases of bursitis and tendonitis, a cortisone injection to the affected area is sometimes enough to cure the condition.
Joint injections are frequently used to relieve pain in areas such as shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, wrists, and the sacrum area.
