Steroid injections are normally the first port of call.
The following services are available at our clinic, All procedures are done under ultrasound guided injection therapy.
Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is an injection therapy which aims to use the body’s natural healing ability to improve cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscle fibres, or even bone. Your blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge to separate the different components. The important plasma is then re-injected back into the body into the site of pain. The addition of extra platelet-rich plasma allows for faster healing and a reduction of pain.
Prolotherapy is a similar style of injection therapy to PRP as it utilizes the body’s own healing abilities. It is used to strengthen and repair injured and/or painful joints and connective tissue within the body.
The minor injury caused through the prolotherapy injection stimulates the bodies inflammatory response. This deceives the body into repairing the site of injection, including previously painful joints.
The use of a cortisone, or steroid, injection involves injecting a man-made substance that reduces inflammation. If it is injected into a painful, swollen area, it can reduce the swelling and limit the pain. These types of injections can also allow for more mobility if administered in joints.
Ostenil injected into the synovial fluid surrounding your joints can restore the normal PH balance and, as a result, reduce your pain and inflammation. The injection thickens your synovial fluid which acts as a lubricating and shock absorbing barrier.
The injection is thought to restore the bodies ability to produce its own hyaluronan which increases the viscosity of the joint’s synovial fluid.
