Steroid Injections are synthetic drugs that closely resemble cortisol, a hormone that your adrenal glands produce naturally. Cortico steroids are different from the male hormone-related steroid compounds that some athletes use. It work by decreasing inflammation and reducing the activity of the immune system. Steroids are used to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases and conditions.
How Are Steroids Given?
Steroid drugs are available in several forms that vary in how easily they dissolve or how long they stay in the body.
Steroids may be given systemically, which means through out the "system" or body, or locally to the precise place where a problem exists.
Systemic steroids can be given either through a vein(intravenously, or IV), into a muscle (intramuscularly), or by mouth (orally). Local steroids can be given as eye drops, ear drops, and skin creams, or by direct injection into joints, bursae (lubricating sacs between certain tendonsand the bones beneath them), or around tendons and other soft tissue areas.
