Corticosteroids are designed to replicate anti-inflammatory hormones.

Corticosteroids are man-made drugs that closely resemble cortisol, a hormone that your adrenal glands produce naturally. Corticosteroids are often referred to by the shortened term “steroids.” Corticosteroids are different from the male hormone-related steroid compounds that some athletes abuse.

Therapeutic steroids

  • Consist of steroid injections which introduce corticosteroids into the area of pain. Corticosteroids are designed to replicate anti-inflammatory hormones.
  • There are different types of steroid injections that are classified based on where they are injected.
  • Steroid injections may reduce pain and restore mobility.
  1. Epidural Injections: This is an injection for the spinal canal that surrounds the spinal cord. It is commonly used to treat sciatica.
  2. Trigger Point Injections: An injection for muscles in the back to reduce inflammation and pain in the back, hip, or legs.
  3. Facet Joint Injections: The facet joints are the joints that connect vertebra to one another. This injection can reduce inflammation and pain in the back.
  4. Sacroiliac joint injection: The sacroiliac joints are the joints that connect the pelvis to the spine. This injection can reduce inflammation and pain in the sacroiliac joint.
