How does our orthopedic evaluation work? Dr. Gronet will ask you questions about your pain. Be as specific as possible when describing your pain. Use details such as where you feel pain, what type of pain you have, how often it hurts, how severe your pain is, and whether or not pain is preventing you from enjoying daily activities. You should also describe any past injuries that could be contributing to your pain. Let him know about any other chronic pain you deal with, even if it seems unrelated.
Before we can administer cortisone injections, Dr. Gronet will ask you a few questions and give you an evaluation to determine your needs. He may ask questions about your medical history, including any underlying medical conditions such as arthritis or diabetes.
To further evaluate your pain, Dr. Gronet will most likely conduct a few physical tests. These tests are meant to check your flexibility, range of motion, and reflexes. He will also check the affected area for swelling and visible symptoms of a condition such as visible lumps, asymmetrical swelling, etc.
Dr. Gronet may have you bend, walk and sit down to test your range of motion. Watching your body’s ability to perform movements helps him evaluate your flexibility to determine your level of pain and where cortisone injections can help.
Cortisone shots are injections that can help relieve pain and inflammation in a specific area of your body. They’re most commonly injected into joints — such as your ankle, elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, spine or wrist. Even the small joints in your hands or feet might benefit from cortisone shots.
The injections usually contain a corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic. Often, you can receive one at your doctor’s office. Because of potential side effects, the number of shots you can get in a year generally is limited.
