Ease Pain & Inflammation Through Joint Injections

Painful joints can be incredibly debilitating, whether it may be caused by injury or down to medical conditions such as arthritis and tendonitis. At our private GP clinic, we recognise the impact this can have on the quality of life, so we offer safe, effective joint injections in Milton Keynes. Administered by one of our skilled registered GPs, these injections are designed to ease pain and reduce swelling, making it far easier to move your joints.

Where Can Joint Injections Treat?

Depending on where the inflammation and pain is, the steroid will be injected directly into the joint, into the soft tissue around or into the muscle. This method can be used to treat a number of areas, such as:








What To Expect From Your Treatment:

Our steroid injections in Milton Keynes are hugely popular and are a quick, minimal-fuss method of providing relief from painful joints. Here is what to expect from your treatment with LasaDerm:


We will always begin with a consultation and an examination to assess the cause of your joint pain. We will create a tailored treatment plan, which may include a joint injection.


If your joints are particularly painful, your GP may use a local anaesthetic to numb the area. The dose of steroid depends on the size of the joint, but the consultation and procedure itself will only take around 20 minutes.


You will likely be asked to rest the treated joint for a couple of days after your treatment to ensure maximum results. Typically, it will take 5-10 days to begin noticing a difference from your steroid injections.


Corticosteroids are used for joint injections; these are a class of steroids used only as an anti-inflammatory medicine. These are different from anabolic steroids, which are widely known for improving athletic performance.
When injected into or around the affected joint, steroids will reduce the activity of the immune system, which decreases inflammation and, therefore, pain.
Steroid injections typically provide around three months of pain relief. However, with the help of physiotherapy and exercises/stretches, the treatment can last much longer and can sometimes provide a permanent resolution. The GP will discuss with you whether it would be appropriate to see another healthcare professional after the injection, such as a physiotherapist and will be able to arrange the referral.
Although steroid injections are suitable for most people, like any treatment, some contraindications may mean you cannot undergo the procedure. Please inform your GP if you have any of the following:

  • Allergies to medicines
  • Depression or bipolar disorder
  • Any infections or unhealed wounds
  • Diabetes
  • Weak or fragile bones
  • Eye problems
  • High blood pressure

You will also need to mention if you are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, breastfeeding or have recently had a vaccination. From here, our GP will assess whether steroid injections are the best course of treatment.
