Your specialist may recommend an injection, depending on your condition. These may include:
- Corticosteroid – routinely injected to help reduce pain and inflammation. The most common injection for muscle and joint pain given across the World.
- Hyaluronic Acid – found naturally in the fluid that lubricates our joints, HA can be used as a substitute for corticosteroid injections. More commonly known under separate trade names such as Ostenil.
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – used commonly to inject mild to moderate arthritic joints and around soft tissue inflammation
- Barbotage – a guided procedure to break up small plaques of soft bone in a tendon that normally occur due to tendon damage. Performed under ultrasound guidance.
