    "May Cause Corrosion"

    October 21, 2019

    If having painful arthritis wasn't bad, now a popular medical treatment for joint pain may actually make the degeneration worse.  Steroid injections have been long touted as an effective way to reduce joint inflammation and pain, but could they be doing more harm than good?


    Researchers are noticing an acceleration of the patients' osteoarthritis progression, as well as other negative effects including subchondral insufficiency fracture, osteonecrosis and rapid joint destruction with bone loss after undergoing the procedure multiple times - as if the steroid injections were corroding the joints, instead of healing them.


    It isn't uncommon to hear a patient say they've had multiple steroid injections over short period of time. But you have to ask yourself... is too much of a questionable thing really worth the risk? There are safer, more natural approaches to help your body heal itself – like Chiropractic.
