CORTISONAL INFILTRATION

This treatment is offered in our clinics of: Jonquière

Dr. Sylvain Simard, a general practitioner, has so far accumulated more than 20 years of experience in pain relief by corticosteroid infiltration. He perfected his techniques of infiltration after training in anesthesia and pain treatment in the region of Hull and this internship was recognized by the College of Physicians. Since August 2012, he offers his services to the clinic.

 

WHAT IS AN INFILTRATION

This is the local administration, by injection, of a drug intended to act in contact with your musculoskeletal injury. This injection of powerful anti-inflammatory drug, targeted in a musculoskeletal region, is generally considered an injection of cortisone, usually consisting of a mixture of corticosteroid and a local anesthetic. In certain circumstances more rare different type of drug can be added to the mixture. The local anesthetic works to relieve pain in the short term, while the corticosteroid reduces inflammation providing long-term pain relief.

Cortisone has an anti-allergenic effect and has many advantages: it is a natural hormone with excellent anti-inflammatory properties. Its non-toxicity makes it possible to increase the dose and to increase its action as needed. In osteoarthritis of the knee and hip, a product called Synvisc (a lubricant) can be used instead, or with cortisone. There are almost no significant systemic side effects such as: stomach ulcers, hypertension, osteoporosis, and water retention, with cortisone infiltrations.
