Steriod injections – Wimbledon Physio

Steroid injections, also called corticosteroid injections, are anti-inflammatory medicines used to treat a range of conditions such as joint pain and arthritis.

At Vita Health Group we offer 2 types of injections: Corticosteroid injections and Hyaluronic acid (Ostenil), both are proven to reduce pain and increase mobility.

Corticosteroid injections

Corticosteroid injections have been widely used for pain relief in musculoskeletal (MSK) medicine and rheumatology since the 1940s. They are widely delivered under the NHS for management of pain of osteoarthritis and other MSK conditions.

The aim of the injections is to help relieve inflammation (swelling) and pain. The injection should reduce pain for least 6 weeks and allow you to slowly return to your normal activities and engage in your rehabilitation programme from your physiotherapist.

Hyaluronic acid (Ostenil)

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of joint fluid. The injection is designed to help to lubricate joints, which reduces inflammation and pain. These injections are sometimes best considered at regular intervals.
