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 Osten
- 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.
- PRP – concentration of platelets and growth factors that help repair damaged tissues. Taken from one’s own blood it is then injected into the areas of damaged tissue to help repair and heal.
