  • Finger

  • Toe

  • Wrist

  • Ankle

  • Shoulder

  • Hip

  • Tendons


The Procedure

  • A cold spray or other local anaesthetic is used when joint injections or aspirations (taking fluid out of a joint) are performed.

  • Anti-inflammatory agents that slow the accumulation of cells that cause inflammation and pain are injected into the joint space.


The Results

  • Within a few days the pain and inflammation settles.

  • The effects can last for months

  • The medication decreases inflammation, swelling, tenderness, or heat the joint is holding.

  • Most patients only need one treatment, but a further treatment may be needed for some patients.

  • There are few side-effects, although patients may feel increased tenderness, warmth, or swelling, around the injection site.
