Injection therapy is the treatment of musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders by the localised injection of a drug (usually a corticosteroid with or without a local anaesthetic). This approach has been utilised for over 50 years and there is a wealth of evidence both anecdotal and research based supporting its use.
The NHS has recommended the use of injection therapy in its national guidelines for the treatment of knee and shoulder problems. It is accepted that, given its relative safety, ease of application (in trained hands) and cost-effectiveness, that injection therapy is a very useful treatment modality.
If you feel you would benefit from this treatment approach then please discuss it with your Physiotherapist.
The cost for each injection varies and in some instances, the cost can be covered by your insurance company. Again, please feel free to discuss this with your Physiotherapist.
We are also able to offer injections of Hyaluonate. These are clinically proven to reduce the pain associated with Osteo-arthritis in synovial joints (knees, shoulders, thumbs and many more) – for more information please click here.
Chartered Physiotherapists work in a variety of settings including hospitals, health centres, GP practices, schools, work places, private clinics and also by visiting people at home.
Should you wish to see a Physiotherapist for private treatment, please make sure they are Chartered and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. By seeing a Chartered Physiotherapist you can be assured that the clinician is properly qualified (usually to Degree standard), governed by professional codes of conduct as well as having professional and Public liability insurance.
