Cortisone Injections Vs Natural Pain Injections

How does Cortisone work?

Cortisone is a steroid drug. It helps decrease swelling and inflammation in your body. It works by stopping the release of molecules that cause inflammation. This also stops your body from having an immune response.

How do natural pain injections work?

Natural pain injections are made of natural botanical and mineral extracts that have the ability to potentially treat inflammation, allow your body to heal properly, and reduce the pain associated with inflammation. Natural injections are powerful tools in relieving painful inflammation and restoring the quality of life, they can also help restore an active lifestyle more quickly than the natural pace of healing on its own.

As an alternative to Cortisone for pain, we have injections that are specific to the type of pain syndrome the person is experiencing. Therefore, it is important to get a consultation with one of our Acupuncture Physicians. We can then determine which remedy would be appropriate for you. Acupuncture Point Injection is often accompanied with other therapies such as: acupuncture, herbal remedies, food therapy and other modalities offered by our team of licensed professionals.

Many of our patients have discovered the negative long term effects of cortisone which is often used for pain conditions. The following information is taken from the Mayo Clinic.



Potential side effects of cortisone shots increase with larger doses and repeated use. Side effects can include:

  • Cartilage damage
  • Death of nearby bone
  • Joint infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Temporary facial flushing
  • Temporary flare of pain and inflammation in the joint
  • Temporary increase in blood sugar
  • Tendon weakening or rupture
  • Thinning of nearby bone (osteoporosis)
  • Thinning of skin and soft tissue around the injection site
  • Whitening or lightening of the skin around the injection site
  • Injections for Pain
  • Injections for other conditions
  • B 12
