Injectable cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication, a synthetically produced steroid that lasts for a longer period of time than the cortisone your body naturally produces. It is injected directly into joints such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles to decrease inflammation, which can subsequently decrease pain. Cortisone injections usually work within a few days, and the effects can last up to several weeks.

To schedule your cortisone injection or if you have any questions regarding cortisone injections, please call (973) 538-2334 or request an appointment online.
