Steroid Joint Injections

Steroids are synthetic drugs that closely resemble cortisol, a hormone that your adrenal glands produce naturally.

Steroids work by decreasing inflammation and reducing the activity of the immune system. Steroids are used to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases and conditions.

If you have a painful joint, for example from injury orarthritis, our Summit Urgent Care providers may offer you a joint injection of a steroid medicine. Steroids reduce inflammation and so can help reduce pain and swelling in your joint and allow it to move more easily.

Some short-acting steroids act quickly and may work for at least a week. Other, long-acting steroids may take about a week to start working, but their effects last for a few months. Sometimes a mixture of these may be used. Our healthcare providers will discuss which is the best option in your circumstances.

If you have a painful joint bothering you, come visit us at Summit Urgent Care to find relief. We offer in-house prescription meds and treat many illnesses and injuries. Just walk in our clinic 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
