We now offer joint injections of corticosteroid or Hyaluronic acid.
What is a corticosteroid injection?
A corticosteroid (or ‘cortisone’) is an anti-inflammatory medicine, which can be injected directly into the tissues that are causing your symptoms. It is a safer alternative to taking anti-inflammatory medication by mouth. It acts directly in the area injected and is not the same as the steroids taken by bodybuilders or athletes.
What are the benefits – why should I have a corticosteroid injection?
The injection can help to relieve swelling, pain and stiffness caused by inflammation. This may in turn help you to start your rehabilitation and return to normal activities sooner by ‘breaking the cycle’ of pain and inflammation. It can also be helpful to aid in the diagnosis of your condition if it is not clear what is responsible for your pain. You may also have a local anaesthetic injected at the same time, which gives temporary pain relief.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is found in high concentration within all healthy joints. It forms part of the synovial fluid. It lubricates, acts as a shock absorber, filters inflammatory molecules, blocks pain receptors and facilitates nutrition of joints.
As we get older, the concentration and quality of the Hyaluronic Acid within joints diminishes. It becomes more watery and less effective at protecting the joint. It is thought that this is a contributory factor in the development of joint pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. Hyaluronic Acid can be produced synthetically and injected into arthritic joints to reduce pain and stiffness. As well as the immediate boost in the concentration of good quality Hyaluronic Acid following the injection, the injection also stimulates the joint to start producing more good quality Hyaluronic Acid of its own.
