Steroid Injection

Corticosteroid is a naturally occurring hormone within the body. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and is very effective at reducing the pain of inflamed areas.

Corticosteroid injections 

Corticosteroid or steroid injections are used when there is chronic inflammation within a joint and it is not settling within normal time limits, typically 8-12 weeks.

Corticosteroid is a naturally occurring hormone within the body. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and is very effective at reducing the pain of inflamed areas.

Some people associate corticosteroids with only short-term relief, there is some truth in this, however when used correctly in small doses they often provide long-term solutions for many conditions.

Conditions that respond well to Steroid injections

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Wrist Pain
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Rotator Cuff Pain
  • Joint Pain

Please note, we do not offer spinal injections. We have an excellent team of chiropractors that can help assist with any back or spinal problems.

 What to expect

A steroid injection is a treatment that is typically used when hands on treatment or exercise therapies have not helped your condition yet. 

Usually diagnostic imaging ultrasound scans, x-rays or MRIs are used to confirm your diagnosis. This is done before your steroid injection appointment. 

During your first visit to make sure you’re getting the right treatment, Jonathan will talk through your detailed medical history and assess your problem. Once Jonathan is happy that you are in the right place, he will talk you through how the procedure works before performing it.

Included in Steroid injection session:

  • Explanation of your diagnosis/condition
  • Explanation of how the treatment works and what to expect
  • Corticosteroid injection delivered under ultrasound guidance for total accuracy
