Pain Care Specialist Clinic offers a wide range of ultrasound-guided steroid, also known as cortisone injections. These injections are offered to people who are suffering from various different musculoskeletal conditions and sports related injuries. Many benefit from an ultrasound-guided steroid injection if they have been suffering from long term conditions, such as arthritis in different joints and bursitis or soft tissue problems including a frozen shoulder or plantar fasciitis.
Before the procedure, you will have a clinical discussion with the musculoskeletal specialist about the benefits and possible complications of the injection. The consultant will then ask you to sign the informed consent form before performing the injection/s.
Following the procedure, you will be given a detailed post-procedure care advice leaflet and will have the opportunity to ask the consultant any questions that you may have about the procedure or post-procedure care.
You will be advised to wait 15-20 minutes before you leave to make your way home so that we can ensure that you are safe to be discharged.
Within a week you will receive a report regarding the consultation, diagnostic ultrasound scan and about the procedure.
