Relieve severe pain in order to resume physical therapy
A cortisone injection is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces the inflammation in your back or knee. The procedure is relatively simple and involves a needle insertion to the inflamed area. Next, the steroid medication is injected. The procedure usually lasts 10-15 minutes.
You’ll experience minimal discomfort and you’ll begin to feel pain relief 2-3 days after the procedure. The time frame of pain relief is variable and may last from one week to one year.
This procedure is helpful because the temporary pain relief you experience from cortisone injections will allow you to take part in physical therapy, and engaging in PT exercises will help you reduce pain in the long run.
