Default What about Corticosteroids?

This is mostly used (that many hear about) for Trigger point injections. I have had some myself after a bad car wreck and I was wondering, for those who end up having pain killer addictions, do they (or can they) start from something like this?

I am just thinking about this myself as I know someone who gets something similar done, I think its one step higher than a TPI but I can not remember the name of it. This same person is the one that I have mentioned before on the site who also has been known to be a "pill popper".

Corticosteroids are steroid hormones produced by the adrenal cortex. The term is usually used to refer to glucocorticoids such as cortisol, which would usually be used topically to relieve some sort of inflammation. In our body, corticosteroids regulate glucose metabolism, immune system function, and fluid homeostasis.
