What is an ultrasound-guided steroid injection?
Steroid injections, also called corticosteroid injections, are anti-inflammatory medicines that are used to treat a wide range of conditions.
A steroid injection administered under ultrasound guidance can be more targeted and can provide significant pain relief, reduce inflammation and improve joint mobility for those suffering from long-term joint pain, as well as in the management of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
At Prime Health we recognise that the management of musculoskeletal and joint pain can be complex, and often no single approach will be adequate on its own. Across our centres, our highly experienced multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals offer a wide range of musculoskeletal pain management treatments and solutions including ultrasound-guided steroid injections.
