Joint injections may be a great option if you've tried other ways to treat your pain unsuccessfully. A joint injection can provide targeted long-term relief for joint pain. Most joint injections contain a concentrated dose of cortisone. Cortisone is a powerful steroid. The steroids in these injections help send targeted inflammation-fighting medicine to the affected joint. The cortisone reduces inflammation, which can lead to a decrease in overall joint pain. It is an effective form of pain management. A joint injection also contains a local anesthetic agent to help numb the area to reduce pain. Joint injections are often combined with joint range of motion and muscle strengthening exercises.
