Ultrasound-Guided Corticosteroid Injections

Corticosteroid injections are used when there is chronic inflammation within a joint or around a tendon that is not settling within normal time limits, typically 8-12 weeks.

Corticosteroid is a naturally occurring hormone within the body. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and is very effective at 
reducing the pain of inflamed areas. 

Many people associate corticosteroids with only short-term relief and there are many negative reports in the media regarding steroids. There is some truth in this, however, when used correctly in small doses, they often provide fast-acting long-term solutions for many conditions. 

What can Corticosteroid Injections Treat?

Corticosteroids are excellent for treating:  

  • Wrist Pain
  • Elbow Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Frozen Shoulders
  • Rotator Cuff Pain
  • Acromioclavicular Joint Pain
  • Heel Pain
  • Morton’s Neuroma


Corticosteroid injection: £205

Ultrasound diagnostic + Corticosteroid injection: £285

Injections are guided using ultrasound by our expert MSK physiotherapist and sonographer, Jonathan Wride.

Please note that ALL of our injections are ultrasound-guided. Research has shown significantly better outcomes when using guided injections, versus unguided, simply because you can be sure to target the specific injury.
