What are the side effects of steroid injections?

While steroid injections are generally safe, they can have side effects. These may include temporary pain or swelling at the injection site, changes in mood, increased blood sugar levels, and, in rare cases, allergic reactions. Long-term use may lead to additional complications, so it’s important to follow medical advice. Before choosing an injection as the right course of treatment for your injury your qualified Physiotherapist will discuss any possible side effects with you.
