Medication can be injected into the knee in order to tackle pain and other symptoms. Different kinds of medication can be injected, depending on the needs of the patient. One of the most common choices is corticosteroid injections.


Corticosteroids can relieve pain and reduce inflammation in the joint. Other treatments that may be recommended can add extra fluid to lubricate the joint or remove excess fluid in order to reduce swelling. The type of medication that is being used and the effects on your body will be explained before you are given a knee injection.
