Cortisone Use in Pain Management Therapy

One of the most common procedures utilized by Dr. Daniel Batlan involves the injection of small amounts of cortisone into the spine to alleviate pain associated with degenerative conditions and other ailments. This treatment, along with other services offered by Dr. Daniel Batlan at the Specialized Pain Management clinic, is meant to treat those who experience moderate to severe pain.

 

Cortisone, one of the hormones released by the adrenal glands when a person responds to stress, is a steroid hormone. When it is introduced to the body’s immune system, cortisone reduces inflammation, pain, and swelling at the injury site. Inflammation of a particular joint, tendon, or bursa can be relieved through a cortisone shot directly into the shoulder, knee, or elbow. Dr. Daniel Batlan also offers epidural, facet, trigger point, sacroiliac, hip and knee, and stellate ganglion injections. After a cortisone shot has been administered, pain relief often begins within twelve (12) hours.
