Did you know approximately one fifth of all general practitioner consultations are for some form of rheumatological or musculoskeletal problem causing pain and discomfort?The use of corticosteroid injection therapy in the management of such foot and ankle problems is widely performed.
Corticosteroids are medications that help to reduce pain and inflammation in a specific area. Corticosteroids should not be the only form of treatment, but can be useful in reducing the overall pain severity of a condition.
Conditions that Corticosteroids can be treated for:
- Plantar Fasciitis
Corticosteroids are administered with a local anesthetic as the medication. Not everyone is a suitable candidate for a steroid injection. We suggest an initial consultation prior to considering any steroid injection.
