In this blog, we will outline the different types of knee injection that we offer and how they can benefit you.

Cortisone Injections  

Cortisone injections help relieve pain and inflammation in a specific area of your body. They’re most commonly injected into joints including your ankle, elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, spine and wrist.

The injections are usually made up of a corticosteroid medication and a local anaesthetic. There are some potential side effects that come with Cortisone injections and therefore the number of treatments you can receive in one year generally is limited.

If you have a mobility-related problem or need help with your pain management, cortisone injections may be the choice for you.

Hyaluronic Acid Injections

The second type of service we offer as a knee injection is Hyaluronic acid injections.

 Hyaluronic acid is part of the body’s natural joint lubricant. It also helps spread the load throughout the joint and nourishes joint surfaces.

For sufferers of conditions such as osteoarthritis, the balance between new and old HA is disrupted and less new HA is being produced by the affected joint.

Having a HA injection can restore the balance within your knee. This can result in less pain and improved mobility within your knee, definitely something you should consider if you are struggling with mobility or pain management.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Platelets are cells found naturally in your bloodstream. They are responsible for producing a substance that can help the body heal damaged tissue called ‘growth factor’. These types of injection cause a stem cell to be released and make its way to the site of the injury.

It is possible to separate the platelets from a patient’s blood and inject the growth factors directly into the damaged area.

When it comes to healing damaged areas, PRP injections can have a huge impact on the healing process.
