Corticosteroid Injection

Ben Du, our podiatrist is also trained in administering corticosteroid injections under ultrasound guidance.

Corticosteroid or ‘cortisone’ injections can be used to provide short-to-medium pain relief for a wide variety of foot and ankle injuries. Cortisone is an anti-inflammatory medicine, which can be injected directly into the affected tissues that are causing your pain and symptoms.

A cortisone injection can reduce swelling, stiffness and pain in your foot and ankle, and acts to stop inflammation in your body.

At Balwyn Sports and Physiotherapy Centre, we use ultrasound to accurately inject the cortisone. Your podiatrist can discuss with you the most beneficial treatment plan based on your injury.

Cortisone Injections can be used to treat:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Capsulitis
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
