What Are Joint Injections?

Joint injections are a minimally invasive treatment where medication is injected directly into the affected joint to reduce pain and inflammation. These injections are particularly effective for conditions like arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis. Learn more about our Joint Injection Clinic here.

Types of Joint Injections We Offer

Corticosteroid Injections: These anti-inflammatory medications are commonly used to treat arthritis and other inflammatory joint conditions, providing quick pain relief.

Hyaluronic Acid Injections: Also known as viscosupplementation, these injections lubricate the joint, reducing friction and improving movement, especially beneficial for osteoarthritis.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections: PRP uses components from your own blood to promote healing and reduce inflammation, ideal for chronic joint pain and sports injuries.

Why Choose Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injections?

Precision and Effectiveness
Ultrasound-guided injections ensure that the medication is delivered accurately to the affected area. This precision increases the effectiveness of the treatment and reduces the risk of complications.

Immediate Appointments
While the NHS waiting list for joint injections can be as long as 6-12 months, we offer same-day appointments where available. This means you can start your pain relief journey without delay.

Complimentary Doctor Referrals
If you don’t have a referral letter from a doctor, don’t worry. At Chelsea Pharmacy Medical Clinic, we provide a free referral from one of our doctors as long as you receive the treatment at our clinic. This seamless process ensures you get the care you need without unnecessary hurdles.

Benefits of Joint Injections

  • Rapid Pain Relief: Many patients experience significant pain reduction shortly after the injection.
  • Improved Mobility: Reduced pain and inflammation can help restore your range of motion and enhance your quality of life.
  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure is non-surgical, with minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities quickly.
  • Customized Treatment: Our specialists tailor the type of injection and medication to your specific condition for optimal results.

The Procedure

Consultation: Your journey begins with a thorough consultation. Our specialist will assess your condition, review your medical history, and discuss your symptoms to determine the best treatment plan.

Preparation: On the day of your appointment, the area around the joint will be cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.

Ultrasound-Guided Injection: Using ultrasound technology, our specialist will accurately guide the needle into the joint and administer the medication.

Post-Injection Care: You’ll receive detailed aftercare instructions to maximize the benefits of the injection and ensure a smooth recovery.
