Service Description

Steroid injections, also called as corticosteroid injections or cortisone injections are used to reduce pain and stiffness in your joints and soft tissues from repetitive strains, arthritis, injuries etc. When injected into a joint space or a soft tissue, they help reduce redness and swelling (inflammation) in the nearby area. Clinicians at Ashberry Physiotherapy are experts and qualified as independent prescribers and are able to perform steroid injections that would be benefit to you.  


We understand the research and evidence around use of steroid injections and we will always make sure we have used whatever conservative measure possible before we end up using steroids. Our clinicians have many years of experience in providing steroid injections and be rest assured you are in the hands of experts.


We also offer advanced injections and procedures alternative to steroids. Please contact us for more details and we will explain which injection is the right treatment for you.

Procedural discomfort?

Minor discomfort from needle procedure is expected in some cases. However, we will try to make the process as comfortable as possible. Where possible we can recommend you choose to have a local anaesthetic to help with procedural pain. The area can feel pain-free and numb for few hours due to local anaesthetic. Once this wears off the pain might return. We recommend you take some pain reliefs for the first night. The research suggest steroid injection maximum improvement is achieved within the first 3 weeks.

Any restrictions?

We recommend that you avoid driving for the first few hours after the injection. It is further recommended to avoid strenuous activities involving the first 48hrs and avoid high impact for the first two weeks. The clinicians will guide you when to return to full activities.

Repeat Injections?

The research recommends a maximum of two steroid injections a year (every six months) for weight bearing joints and up to three a year for soft tissue problems like shoulders. Combining the steroid injection with a physiotherapy exercise program will maximize your recovery and pain-relieving effect. We recommend booking into our physiotherapy clinic to provide guidance on rehab post-injection to achieve maximum outcome from injection therapy.
