Dr. Scott is a caring professional who always takes the time to explain to me, the nature of my problems and my treatment options. Any questions or concerns that I have, are promptly addressed.

Cortisone injections are often utilized to treat pain related to musculoskeletal injuries and spinal injuries. These injections typically include a mixture of local anesthetics and a corticosteroid medication. Pain is typically caused by inflammation. Corticosteroid, AKA cortisone, medications are potent anti-inflammatory agents typically used in injection preparations because they can be applied directly at the site of inflammation or pain.

All medications, including corticosteroids, have the potential for unacceptable side effects at high or continuous dosages. Our goal is to provide the lowest effective dosage. Dr. Scott has 20 years of experience in joint and spinal injections and draws from that experience to provide the lowest effective dosage in his injection procedures. Often times injections are completed for diagnostic purposes only and do not require cortisone at all.
