Cortisone Alternative Treatment

Cortisone alternative | WAI AcupunctureQuite frequently, those suffer in pain are recommended cortisone shots by their pain management specialists.  The procedure can be performed in an out-patient pain clinic.  Patients will be injected with cortisone into the affected tissue or joint with imaging guidance.  Due to the potential side effects, many patients are exploring alternative treatments to avoid cortisone injection.

In 2019, Radiology Society of North America released a research article titled "Intra-articular Corticosteroid Injections in the Hip and Knee: Perhaps Not as Safe as We Thought?" (https://pubs.rsna.org/doi/full/10.1148/radiol.2019190341).  They discussed there are conflicting evidence on the potential benefit with the use of cortisone injections.

Our integrative approach of NeuroScience Acupuncture with Frequency Specific Microcurrent provides a highly effective treatment as an alternative to steroid injection.  As a result, many clients are able to avoid the cortisone injection or surgery.

If you are looking for an alternative treatment rather than drugs, steroid injection or surgery, call us at 407-335-4688 to schedule a free consultation to learn your options.
