If you suffer from heel pain in Ancaster, Dundas or Hamilton, you may want to try a Cortisone Injection.
What Is a cortisone injection and how does it work?
Cortisone is a natural hormone that the adrenal gland produces when a person feels stressed. A synthetic version of this hormone may be injected directly into the affected area or in the side of the heel. Cortisone injections are very helpful in temporarily relieving or managing heel pain caused by chronic plantar fasciitis by reducing inflammation. The pain will begin to subside within a few days after the Cortisone injection and may last up to a few weeks and sometimes even a few months.
Cortisone injections are performed in-office and do not require any local anesthetic.
It is important to exhaust all other non-invasive treatment option before considering cortisone injections.
