Fast-acting pain relief for inflamed joints

Tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff, arthritis, and similar types of joint pain can be treated with steroid (Cortisone) or Hyaluronic acid (Ostenil) injections. At Lyfe, we provide both types of injection, with outstanding results.

Cortisone

Cortisone is a type of steroid medicine used to calm down the body’s response to pain and inflammation. It can be injected directly into the painful joint, such as the shoulder, elbow, knee or hip to make movement easier. Contrary to popular belief, cortisone doesn’t just relieve pain, it also reduces the inflammation itself. The benefits of a cortisone injection can often last several months, and side effects are rare.

Ostenil

Ostenil is a visco-supplementation medicine used to increase the health and function of a joint and was developed specifically for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Like cortisone, it can be injected directly into the joint to combat pain and swelling. In osteoarthritis, the fluid between the bones starts to break down and causes the cartilage to wear down. Ostenil can restore this balance, providing long-lasting relief.

A cortisone or ostenil injection will only be recommended by your Lyfe consultant after conducting a thorough assessment. We’ll take a look at how your injury occurred, what movements aggravate it and talk through any previous treatments already undergone. It is possible that you may not be eligible for a steroid or ostenil injection due to another medical condition, but our experts will walk you through any possible risks and side effects.

After receiving a joint injection, it’s advisable to rest the affected joint for a short term to maximise the benefits of the treatment. Your healthcare professional will provide specific guidance based on your individual case.

While steroid injections are generally safe, they can have side effects. These may include temporary pain or swelling at the injection site, changes in mood, increased blood sugar levels, and, in rare cases, allergic reactions. Long-term use may lead to additional complications, so it’s important to follow medical advice. Before choosing an injection as the right course of treatment for your injury your qualified Physiotherapist will discuss any possible side effects with you.

Cortisone is a corticosteroid used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain in inflamed joints. It’s effective in treating conditions like arthritis, tennis elbow, and frozen shoulder. By reducing inflammation, cortisone not only eases pain but also aids in improving joint function.

The effects of steroid injections can vary, but generally, you may start to notice improvement in pain and mobility within a few days after the injection. Full benefits are usually felt within two weeks.

The duration of relief from a steroid injection can vary. Typically, the benefits can last for several months, but this depends on the individual and the condition being treated.

Cortisone injections work by delivering powerful anti-inflammatory medication directly into the affected joint. This helps in reducing inflammation, which in turn decreases pain and improves function.

After a cortisone injection, it’s important to avoid overusing the treated joint. Heavy lifting or strenuous activity should be avoided for a few days after the injection to allow the medication to work effectively. Additionally, monitoring for any unusual symptoms and following up with your healthcare professional is advised.
