What Are Pain Injections

Overview

Pain injections, such as those containing steroids, are a synthetic version of hormones that are normally produced by the adrenal glands, two small glands found above the kidneys. When steroids are injected into a joint or muscle, they can reduce redness and swelling (inflammation) in the nearby area. This can help relieve your stiffness and pain in that area.
Also known as corticosteroid injections, steroid injections, are medications used to help reduce inflammation. Patients suffering from joint pain, arthritis, sciatica, and inflammatory bowel disease may be given a steroid injection. These injections are given by healthcare professionals. Here are some examples: triamcinolone, hydrocortisone, and methylprednisolone.
