A local steroid injection is given to reduce inflammation and pain within a joint, especially for people with inflamed arthritic peripheral/spinal joints and tendon pathology. At Astella Clinics we focus on using steroid injections as an adjunct for treating such peripheral musculoskeletal disorders as arthritis, acute/chronic tendinopathy, bursitis, neuromas, and fasciitis. Due to the aseptic technique and low strength of the local dosage we use, the risk of side effects such as infection, changes in mood and thinning of skin are unlikely.However, there may be occasional flare-up in the joint pain within the first 24 hours after an injection but it usually settles on its own within a couple of days.
