Joint Injection Therapy
Corticosteroid (Steroid) Injections
Local steroid injections can be a rapid and effective treatment for joint pain and inflammation, although unlike non-steroid injections the improvement is usually temporary. They can be used alongside conventional physiotherapy treatment to help resolve musculoskeletal conditions.
Corticosteroid is a prescription medication so while we carry out these injections in clinic you need to obtain the medication from you GP via a private prescription.
Ostenil® (Non-Steroid) Injections
Ostenil® is a treatment for the symptoms of osteoarthritis and other joint and tendon pain. It can be used in the knee, shoulder or in any of the other joints in the body that are classified as ‘synovial’. Despite supporting scientific evidence it is not commonly used within the NHS due to its cost but has been used privately and within sports medicine for many years with great effect. It has similar benefits to corticosteroid injections but with less side effects.
