Steroid Injections for Lasting Foot and Ankle Comfort


Reduce Inflammation
A Component of Comprehensive Care

Steroid Injection

Cortisone or corticosteroid injections, often referred to as steroid injections, provide temporary relief from the pain and discomfort by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune response in the affected area. 

  • Managing acute inflammation

  • Rapid pain relief

  • Facilitate rehabilitation

The effects of a steroid injection can be felt very quickly, with patients reporting a significant decrease in pain within a few days.


In the face of acute inflammation, particularly in foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis or a sudden flare-up of big toe arthritis, steroid injections can play a pivotal role in providing swift and significant pain relief.

These potent anti-inflammatory agents are designed to target and reduce the inflammation at its source, offering patients a much-needed respite from discomfort.

While steroid injections are highly effective at reducing pain, their benefits can be short-lived. To transform this temporary relief into a long-term solution, it's essential to integrate the injections into a broader treatment plan.

Balanced Approach

Steroid injections are a powerful tool when used judiciously as part of a multifaceted treatment strategy.

The advantage of diminishing pain is twofold: it not only provides immediate comfort but also facilitates patients in engaging with other forms of therapy that might otherwise be too painful to undertake.

By alleviating pain, steroid injections can make the use of custom orthotics to redress gait and biomechanics issues more effective.  With your pain managed, it is also more feasible for patients to partake in rehabilitative exercises and activities that are crucial for recovery.
