Joint Injections

Drug information

STEROID INJECTIONS are used to treat soft tissue conditions as well as joint pain and inflammation.


Steroid injections can be a quick and effective treatment for soft tissue conditions, joint pain and inflammation, although the improvement is usually temporary. They’re normally given as part of a wider rehabilitation programme. You can discuss the benefits and risks of steroid injections with healthcare professionals before you start treatment, so you’re able to make an informed decision.
