What is a joint injection?
Joint injections are a quick procedure to inject hydrocortisone (a type of steroid) directly into an inflamed, swollen joint to provide pain relief. Damage or injury to a joint can cause chronic joint pain and make it harder to enjoy everyday activities such as:
- Playing sport
- Walking around easily
Conditions that may cause joint pain include:
- Bursitis (housemaid’s knee)
- Tendonitis (tennis elbow)
A joint injection could benefit you by reducing inflammation and swelling in the affected joint, especially if you’re experiencing:
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Wrist pain
After a joint injection, your pain should improve and you can move your joint more easily, allowing you to get back to your usual routine. If you don’t think injections are for you, hydrocortisone can also be received in the form of skin creams, foam and tablets.
These steroids are only available with a prescription. Before recommending joint injections, your clinician will ask about your general health and may check your blood pressure and blood sugar, as hydrocortisone can raise these.
Hydrocortisone isn’t suitable for everyone, so you should tell your clinician if you:
- Are allergic to hydrocortisone or other medicines
- Have depression or bipolar disorder, or if any members of your family have these illnesses
- Have an infection, or have recently come in close contact with somebody with chickenpox, measles or shingles
- Are trying to conceive, currently pregnant or you’re breastfeeding
- Have recently had or will soon have any vaccinations
You won’t have to wait long to find out if joint injections are right for you, and if you have more than one painful joint you can discuss whether to have them treated at the same time.
After having a long wait time of 3 1/2 weeks for an appointment with my NHS Dr, I decided to book in with the private gp clinic. This was quick and simple my appointment was the following week (could have been sooner if I were available). The reception staff greeted me with warm smiles as did Dr Soin. Very professional and knowledgeable. I would book in again.
I had an appointment earlier this week with Joanne Horgan to discuss various options to manage my menopause. We spent some time going through my background and following comprehensive blood tests Joanne has made excellent recommendations for me. She has a wealth of experience and an extremely warm... Readmore and friendly manner. I would thoroughly recommend Joanne if you want help managing your menopause. I only wish I had found her sooner!!!
I saw Dr Horgan last week. Very impressed with the service I received. Very nice Dr to talk to who listens, answers questions and takes time to discuss. Will definitely use again.
I spent an hour with Joanne recently talking through my menopause issues and could not be happier. Blood tests were taken the same day and results were available 2 days later. Joanne made some much-needed changes to my existing treatment and I would thoroughly recommend her if you're looking for help with managing your menopause. She has a warm and friendly manner and her knowledge in this area is first class
Offered an appointment within the hour, really great fast efficient service!
Felt very confident with what was happening, Joanne talked me through the whole procedure, whilst it was happening. Have already recommended it to friends and family. Am delighted with the results.
