EFFECT OF CORONA VIRUS AND STEROID INJECTIONS
1st April 2020
Steroid injections are a routine part of spinal intervention for radiculopathy. Although there is no clear evidence that steroid injections can increase the likelihood of acquiring COVID 19 or increasing the severity, possible concerns have been raised regarding reduced survival benefit and possible harms. We do know that steroids will reduce your immunity for short period of time. Complication and mortality related Covid 19 are higher in some groups of people, particularly older people and those with comorbidities. It is your decision if you like to go ahead with this Injection. This can be organised/ reviewed later in few weeks or few months’ time. Corticosteroids should not be administered if a person has COVID-19 infection, or if there is a possibility, he/she may have COVID-19, even if there are no symptoms at the time. A number of health care organisations have stopped steroid injections in short term due to Corona virus Pandemic.
