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.

To learn more about how a cortisone steroid shot could relieve your arthritis pain and help you enjoy a more active life, contact Advanced Healing Institute today. We look forward to delivering world-class care with a personalized treatment approach.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went in to to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

I can’t say enough about how intelligent Dr. Reza Dehdari is! I came to him to read my MRI for my ankle and he found a tear that multiple Doctors missed!!!! Simply incredible and I trust him throughly. Thank you so much!

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.

Dr. Reza Dehdari you are an amazing person. Thank you for going the extra mile on my shoulder after three Doctors told me I needed surgery. You took your time and explained everything about what to expect and to be patient while I heal. And that’s exactly what I did was heal, I can’t thank you enough for what you did for me.

Within the last 6 months I've suffered two minor injuries on the same knee which have restricted my mobility and caused me a lot of pain. I've seen an orthopedic dr.,, a pain management dr., and a sports medicine dr., all of which simply told me either surgery or learn to live with the pain! I've heard about PRP as an alternative with a high percentage of success. Thus, I made an appointment to see Dr. Dehdari, and was pleasantly surprised by his high level of knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness. Dr. Dehdari reviewed my MRI (previously ordered by the Orthopedist) explained the extent of my injuries, took X-Rays and an ultrasound to carefully determined if I was a good candidate for PRP. I can only say that I wish more doctors will give you the time, attention and care that Dr. Dehdari provides. Thank you Dr Dehdari, thank you for such high work ethics and patient care. Many thanks to his staff as they are as attentive and caring as Dr. Dehdari. It has been only 24 hrs since I received my PRP treatment and my pain levels have drastically gone down! I highly recommend Dr. Dehdari.
