Hello!

Steroids acts against the inflammatory responses of your body affected by arthritis in your knee joint. Steroid injections should start giving some relief in couple of days and if there is no relief in a week’s time you can try some other method like viscosupplementation if you are suffering from osteoarthritis.

You can also take NSAIDs intermittently and apply ice packs also.

Discuss with an orthopedician.

Take care!
