Avoid Steroid Injections with PEMF

Steroids are synthetic drugs that closely resemble a hormone your adrenal glands produce naturally. These steroids or corticosteroids are different from the male hormone-related steroid compounds used by athletes.

Steroids work by decreasing inflammation and reducing the activity of the immune system.  Steroids are injected directly into the joint to treat rheumatoid arthritis, gout or other inflammatory diseases.  You should try avoiding steroid injections if you have any infection in your body or if you are using a blood thinner. If you have diabetes, epilepsy, high blood pressure or problems with your liver, heart or kidneys you should be avoiding steroid injections. Steroid injections can be useful in treating many conditions, such as autoimmune conditions which can be disabling or life-threatening. You doctor can recommend what treatment would be best for you.

Although steroids are an effective way to decrease pain and improve function, there are side effects that may occur. You need to ask if the risks outweigh the benefits and if avoiding steroid injections would be best.

Reasons for Avoiding Steroid Injections:

  • Infection causing redness, swelling, and pain
  • Allergic reactions
  • Local bleeding or bruising
  • Rupture of a tendon
  • Skin Discoloration or Dimpling
  • Pain & Discomfort for a few days
  • Flushing of the skin
  • Blood sugar level may increase for a few days in Diabetics
  • Blood pressure may go up for a few days

After receiving a steroid injection, you may need to rest the treated body part for a couple of days and avoid strenuous activity for about five days. PEMF therapy is never painful and can be relaxing for those avoiding steroid injections.

Repeated injections of steroids into the same area can damage tendons, ligaments and articular cartilage.  Most Doctors wait at least six weeks between injections and only recommend three injections in the same area in a year.  Doctors are avoiding steroid injections placed directly into tendons. The Achilles and patella tendons are particularly prone to injury post-injection, even if the injection is near and not in the tendon. Avoiding steroid injections in this area could be for the best. Steroids are potent anti-inflammatory and tissue destroying injections that will decrease inflammation and improve comfort temporarily.  Avoiding steroid injections for orthopedic pain and using PEMF may be a better alternative.
