What is a joint injection?

Joint injections, also known as Cortisone, are a quick procedure to inject hydrocortisone (a type of steroid) directly into an inflamed, swollen joint to provide pain relief. Damage or injury to a joint can cause chronic joint pain and make it harder to enjoy everyday activities such as:

  • Driving
  • Playing sport
  • Walking around easily

Conditions that may cause joint pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis (housemaid’s knee)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis (tennis elbow)

A joint injection could benefit you by reducing inflammation and swelling in the affected joint, especially if you’re experiencing:

  • Elbow pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Wrist pain

After a joint injection, your pain should improve and you can move your joint more easily, allowing you to get back to your usual routine. If you don’t think injections are for you, hydrocortisone can also be received in the form of skin creams, foam and tablets.

These steroids are only available with a prescription. Before recommending joint injections, your clinician will ask about your general health and may check your blood pressure and blood sugar, as hydrocortisone can raise these.

Hydrocortisone isn’t suitable for everyone, so you should tell your clinician if you:

  • Are allergic to hydrocortisone or other medicines
  • Have depression or bipolar disorder, or if any members of your family have these illnesses
  • Have an infection, or have recently come in close contact with somebody with chickenpox, measles or shingles
  • Are trying to conceive, currently pregnant or you’re breastfeeding
  • Have recently had or will soon have any vaccinations

You won’t have to wait long to find out if joint injections are right for you, and if you have more than one painful joint you can discuss whether to have them treated at the same time.
