Knee shots, or injections, can help you cope with the pain in the knee and hopefully enable you to be more active.
Which Injections are Used for Knee Pain?
Steroid shots can give quick pain relief.
Another kind of shot is a hyaluronic acid injection.
What are the Side Effects of Shots for Knee Pain?
A common side effect of injections is pain and swelling the first day or two after the shot. It may help to apply ice at home for 15 to 20 minutes.
Injecting anything into a joint or tendon has a very small risk of harm.
