Are there side effects of intra-articular cortisone applications?

Local and joint injections are treatment techniques applied by an experienced and qualified physician with the help of a special injector directly to the most required area.


The aim is to administer the necessary substance (PRP) or Cortisone to the area where the most improvement is desired and keep the drug dose at the lowest level (minimum).


Corticosteroid applied intra-articularly does not build up higher of body!s own cortisone level and therefore does not cause concern.


Intraarticular steroid (cortisone) injections have been used for many years. It is the most powerful ‘anti-inflamation substance’ known. Joint pain and steffness will be reduced in a very short time and the motility will increase.
