Steroid Injections are anti-inflammatory corticosteroids, these injections are pivotal in reducing inflammation and alleviating pain attributed to knee arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis.

The steroid is injected directly into the painful joint which are most commonly the shoulder, elbow, knee, hand, wrist, or hip. Steroids are prescription only medicines and will only be prescribed by a qualified practitioner after a detailed consultation and review.

Steroid injections are also used to treat painful tendons and bursitis (when a small bag of fluid which cushions a joint gets inflamed) and can also sometimes be used to treat muscle pain when it’s in a particular area.

Hyaluronic Acid Lubricating Injections are medical treatment aimed at providing joint lubrication and reducing pain in conditions like osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber. Individual may experience improved joint mobility and reduce discomfort.

Steroid or hyaluronic acid injections benefits can last for several months and in some cases, it may be beneficial for patients to manage arthritic conditions over an extended period with a series of injects rather than undergo surgery.

Steroid injections and hyaluronic acid treatments are often used for different purposes. Steroids may be used to reduce inflammation, while hyaluronic acid is commonly used for joint lubrication in conditions like osteoarthritis.

Steroid injections work by reducing inflammation, providing quick relief, while hyaluronic acid injections aim to improve joint function by enhancing lubrication and shock absorption in the long term.

Both treatments may have side effects, such as infection or allergic reactions. Steroid injections may also have effects on bone density, while hyaluronic acid injections might cause joint swelling or pain.

The duration of relief varies; steroid injections often provide relief that may last for few to several months, while hyaluronic acid injections may require a series of injections and provide longer-term benefits, potentially lasting several months.

The choice between steroid and hyaluronic acid injections depends on the underlying condition and individual patient factors. For example, steroid injections may be preferred for acute inflammation, while hyaluronic acid injections may be more suitable for certain types of osteoarthritis. At Doc Plus, our medical professionals have the experience to give you tailored advise prior to the treatment.
