Hi,

For pain in joints which that's severe, steroids injection are quite effective and the procedure is quite safe in expert hands with little risks that would be explained to you.

Kenalog is the one that we use quite often for the same reason and it works quite well though there are few other options available.

If you have any special bad experience with Kenalog or you are allergic then you can request another one, otherwise, it does not make a lot of difference to use this or other.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
