Injection Therapy

Welcome to Active Step’s Injection Therapy service – a specialised approach to pain management that targets the source of discomfort, providing effective relief and enabling you to regain your freedom of movement. Our expert clinicians are skilled in the administration of steroid joint injections and soft tissue injections, tailored to address a range of lower limb conditions.

Features of Steroid Injections:

Precision and Expertise

Our experienced clinicians utilise advanced techniques to accurately deliver injections directly to the affected area, ensuring maximum effectiveness and minimal discomfort.

Localised Treatment

Injection therapy delivers medication directly to the site of pain or inflammation, providing rapid relief to the affected joint or tissue without affecting the rest of your body.

Non-Surgical Approach

Steroid joint injections and soft tissue injections offer a non-invasive alternative to surgery, often providing significant relief and reducing the need for more invasive procedures.

Benefits of Injection Therapy:

Effective Pain Relief: Injection therapy targets the underlying cause of your pain, reducing inflammation and providing relief that can last for weeks or even months.

Enhanced Mobility: By alleviating pain and inflammation, injection therapy can significantly improve your joint mobility and overall range of motion.

Minimal Side Effects: Localised treatment minimises the risk of systemic side effects often associated with oral medications.

Fast Recovery: Many patients experience rapid pain relief shortly after the injection, allowing for a quicker return to daily activities.

Conditions That Might Benefit from Steroid Injections:

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Steroid injections can offer relief from the heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis.
  • Osteoarthritis: Joint injections can provide relief from pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis in the ankle, midfoot and toe joints.
  • Bursitis: Injections can reduce inflammation in bursae (fluid-filled sacs) near joints, relieving pain associated with conditions like hip or ankle bursitis.
  • Gout: Joint injections can manage pain and inflammation in gout-affected joints.
  • Nerve Compression: Injections can provide relief from pain due to nerve compression, like Morton’s neuroma or sciatica.

At Active Step, we’re committed to delivering the highest quality of care to our patients. Our Injection Therapy service represents our dedication to relieving your pain, enhancing your mobility, and helping you regain your active lifestyle.
