Kenalog is a type of corticosteroid similar to cortisone. Kenalog works to reduce inflammation and pain
Why Have a Cortisone Injection?
Injecting cortisone gets the medication directly to the inflamed region. Kenalog injections are far less complex than having surgery, and often provide the lasting pain relief that can help you enjoy life again.
What Does The Injection Treat?
Injecting cortisone can relieve many types of pain, from sports injuries to arthritis. You can have an injection for treating inflammation, a sprain, or other problems. Kenalog is most commonly injected in your joints, such as knees, hips, and shoulders.
Getting the Injection
Your doctor will start by cleaning the area with alcohol and numbing the skin at the injection site with local anesthetics. He will then inject the Kenalog. A small bandage will be applied over the injection site and you will be ready to go home.
After Your Injection
Some patients feel more pain after being injected. This is normal, and it will go away in a day or so. Avoid tasks that may strain the treated region.
