What can our specialists do for you?
For tendon or joint problems, where pain is a symptom of a joint swelling or tendon damage, and where oral medication and exercise may not be possible, a steroid injection can provide patients with effective pain relief. In some cases, a steroid injection may be curative, especially for tendon problems.
This type of injection can be administered to the same affected area in the body up to 4 times annually. In most cases, it produces a good result, and occasionally further management is necessary.
