Frequently Asked Questions

Does cortisone just cover up my pain? Will I injure myself without knowing?

Cortisone is neither a pain medication nor an anesthetic. It is an anti-inflammatory drug. It is a compound similar to what the body normally produces at times of stress, except longer-lasting. Cortisone helps the body recover. All of your faculties and sensations will remain intact, thus you will not injure yourself without knowing.
