Will a Steroid Injection Help Bunion Pain?

Bunions can be very painful and uncomfortable. Our office offers different treatment methods so we can meet the individual needs of our patients. We always opt for conservative measures before we turn to surgical interventions. One great way to treat the pain caused by a bunion, is to have a steroid injection.

A Cortisone injection will help to ease the pain associated with a bunion with minimal side effects. Our doctors inject the steroid directly into the source of pain. Our doctors believe this is much more effective than taking medication as it gets to the exact spot of the pain. The injections are great for temporarily minimizing pain, however, the effects may wear off after time.

We have a number of different treatments available for bunion pain. Call our office to set up your free exam and discuss different treatment options with a doctor.
