Joint & Soft Tissue Injection Therapy
We use injection therapy alongside our physiotherapy practice and this gives you the opportunity to engage in full rehabilitation and get back to fitness sooner.
When indicated, injections of steroid and local anesthetic can be very effective in reducing joint/ soft tissue pain and dysfunction allowing you to fully rehabilitate.
In addition to steroid injections, we also offer injections of sodium hyaluronate (Ostenil) for joint and soft tissues. This injection can increase the viscosity of something called synovial fluid within the painful joints and soft tissues, helping to restore its lubricating, shock-absorbing, and filtering properties. In addition, it re-establishes the protective coating over the inner surface of joints. The result of this can be a reduction in pain and inflammation of the joint’s membrane, allowing for freedom of movement and reduced pain levels.
