Dr Alexander was a senior registrar in Rheumatology and has been working for Barnet Trust for nearly 20 years. She does over a 100 joint injections per year. The treatment reduces inflammation within the joint, so easing pain and helping one to regain mobility. A small dose of steroid (which is not absorbed into the body) together with a local anaesthetic is injected directly into the area of the joint.
Conditions suitable for joint injection are:
- osteoarthritis eg. knee, wrist, ankle, fingers, feet or base of thumb
- frozen shoulder or shoulder pain
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- lumbar spine facet joints
- tennis elbow or golfers elbow
- tendinitis (other sites)
Price is: £50-65. We offer a 10% discount for 2 joints.
