Frequently Asked Questions

During treatment:

  • We will monitor your blood pressure and heart rate.
  • You will be positioned carefully and comfortable so that the area for the injection is easy to access. The skin area will be cleaned and a sterile drape will be applied.
  • In some cases, forms of image guidance will be used to guide the injection accurately.
  • Local anesthetic is injected to numb the skin and surrounding tissues. There can be a little discomfort at this stage but not for too long.
  • When the injections are given, there may be a feeling of pressure, tightness or a pushing sensation. Please make the team aware if there is any discomfort or any of these symptoms; tingling around the mouth, ringing in ears, feeling dizzy, blurred vision, muscle twitches or difficulty breathing.

After treatment:

After the procedure, you will be taken to our recovery ward where you will be monitored. You will then be assisted to get dressed and start moving.

You will be allowed to have pain relief after the treatment but only once you have been assessed to find out how much pain relief is necessary. More information and advice will be given once you have rested and ready to be discharged.

With our team of experts, we can manage and treat pain across the body. Injections are one methods of elevating the symptoms of pain and they can be performed in most joints including the knee, elbow, shoulder, back and ankle.

Every patient is different and we therefore, work with you to diagnose the most appropriate treatment pathway. What may work well for one patient, will not be so effective for another. Our aim is to use our consultant’s expertise and specialist diagnostic equipment to tailor your treatment plan.
