Cortisone Steroid Shot for Inflammation, Arthritis and other Conditions
Cortisone is a type of steroid that has been proven to reduce inflammation when strategically injected into painful joints and tendons of the body. Unlike oral steroids, cortisone steroid shots stay localized within the treated area of the body with little to no side effects. At Advanced Healing Institute, we recommend cortisone injections as a minimally-invasive approach to reducing inflammation and treating sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other similar conditions. They are also ideal for patients who have failed to find relief with oral medication, rest or wearing splints. It is a favorable alternative for those who are not ready or willing to undergo surgical treatment.
Steroid injections are considered a quick, effective and versatile treatment for pain relief. They can be performed in various regions of the body, but they are especially beneficial when injected into arthritic joints or around inflamed tendons. Not only can cortisone shots help patients feel better, but they can be diagnostic as well. Pain relief can confirm or deny a certain diagnosis for our physician.
What to Expect from a Cortisone Injection
Getting a steroid injection is a simple and brief procedure that can be done in the comfort of our clinic. The injection site is cleaned and numbed so discomfort is very minimal. Our physicians use advanced techniques to ensure the cortisone is injected precisely where it will be most effective. The results of a steroid shot are typically not felt until 2 to 5 days after the procedure.
After the injection, patients are encouraged to stay mildly to moderately active. It is important to avoid strenuous activities or those that caused your injury in the first place. The pain relief provided by a cortisone injection varies from patient to patient. Some may benefit from long-lasting improvement, while others experience more short-term relief. The number of injections per site is limited so it is important to follow physician guidelines in terms of spacing out your cortisone treatments.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

I was suffering from plantar fasciitis for 3 months. It has now been 4 weeks since my PRP treatment and I am now pain free!! Great clinic & staff and great natural treatment!
5 words.....Experienced, Clean, Friendly, Easy, Fast, Results!!!!!!
Went to see Dr. Dehdari for information about PRP treatment, on my hip, and he was able to explain the procedure and really explained it all very well. I had the PRP treatment performed over a month ago, and it has helped so much. Most of the pain in the hip is now gone and I no longer walk with a limp. If your looking for information about PRP, I would definitely recommend co silting with Dr. Dehdari.
I have been suffering for years with knee pain due to over use and years of playing sports. But after seeing Dr. Dehdari and getting treatment my pain is gone and I have never felt better. I am back to doing the activities I love. I got an appointment right away and he was very caring and paid attention to what I had to say.
This is the natural way of letting the body heal itself with the help of an expert like Dr. Dehdari. I tried everything else -- steroids, cortisone, etc.; nothing worked. Then one visit to Dr. Dehdari and my tennis elbow is gone. Highly recommend him and this procedure.
