Joint Injections

Joint injections are used to help relieve inflammation and swelling, and to make movement easier, in painful, swollen and inflamed joints. Joint injections work by minimising the body’s reaction to inflammation. When inflammation is reduced, pain also reduces.

Joint injections are administered directly in to the inflamed area; this is called an intra-articular injection. A high concentration of steroid can be administered with minimal side effects.

Discomfort usually improves and resolves within a few days and the benefits can be temporary (lasting for several months) or permanent. Injections can take up to 4 weeks to be completely effective.

The joints most often injected are the shoulder, elbow, knee, hand, wrist or hip.

Joint injections must be combined with appropriate rehabilitation to gain the best results.


Joint injections are administered by our specialist injection physiotherapist.

Once consent is given, the skin surface is thoroughly cleaned, the joint is entered with a needle attached to a syringe and the steroid is injected into the joint space.

To achieve an overall improvement in treatment outcome, the appointment will also include education, advice and an appropriate post-treatment plan to further support recovery.

What our patients say

I've been going to Square One for treatment of my own injuries for several years and I've always ben amazed at how quickly they can get me going again. I've been prompted to write a review today though having been to see Jennie at Square One with my 11 year old son, who has pains in his knee. The way she spoke to him, treated him and helped him was exceptional. She spoke directly to him the whole time, in a language he could relate to and made him feel comfortable, and confident they can help him get better. I've always know these guys were very very good. Today showed me they're the best. Thank you Jennie, Jenine and team.

What our patients say

I have had a long-standing issue with severe sciatica for more than 12 months due to a prolapsed disc. It had got to the point where I needed some professional help and advice so as to move forward with the injury. The improvement in a matter of weeks has been amazing. I will totally recommend this company to anyone that needs physiotherapy. Great value for money based on the profound effect made to my everyday life.

What our patients say

I saw Laura today after suffering from severe back pain, since Saturday afternoon, I have been unable to walk without pain. Laura assessed, diagnosed and treated me with such professionalism and expertise. I am now able to walk with much more ease and I have been given exercises to do before she sees me again on Friday. I am so grateful that you are remaining open throughout this difficult time. Thank you.

What our patients say

I have been to Laura twice with severe back pains caused by a problem hip. She has sorted out the pain with the minimum fuss. I would strongly recommend the clinic, the booking system is easy and everyone is charming and friendly, not to mention a super physio.

Humphrey Spaight

What our patients say

I have been suffering with tension headaches on and off for a couple of years now. I tried everything to get them to go away to the point where I thought they would never go and it was really taking over my life. I saw Jenine on a recommendation and I finally have them under control. Jenine is really friendly, easy to talk to and a great professional who really knows her stuff, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone who needs help.
