Market Synopsis of the Global Cortisone Shots Market
Also known as cortisone injections, cortisone shots are used to relieve pain and inflammation in case of injury to the joints or other parts of the body. They are most commonly used to treat inflammation at the joints such as knee, spine, ankle, elbow, hip, shoulder and wrist, and are usually administered in a clinical setting with the doctor’s approval. Cortisone injections have a similar anti-inflammatory action to other corticosteroids. It is composed of corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic. Due to the potential side effects of cortisone shots, the number of doses administered to a patient is limited. Major indications for the use of cortisone shots are arthritis, skin diseases, tendinitis, and other sport injuries.
Rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, and bursitis, increasing number of injuries to the joints, muscles and tendon, and the presence of key players in the market are important driver that accelerate the growth of the market. Rising geriatric population is another key driver for the market growth due to increasing prevalence of arthritis among the elderly. However, cortisone shots exhibit a number of disadvantages such as damage to the tendons, ligaments, and articular cartilage, thus restricting the growth of the market.
