What is a steroid / cortisone injection?
If you’re looking for a way to alleviate pain and inflammation, a steroid injection may be just what you need. Steroid injections, also known as cortisone injections, provide short-term relief from inflammation and pain associated with arthritis, tendinitis and bursitis.
Steroid joint injections are useful in the treatement of rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions to the joints. The type of treatment to be performed as well as balancing the pros and cons of having a ultrasound guided steroid injection is always discussed with you by our clinical specialists and advanced physiotherapists prior to the start of any treatment so you are kept fully informed.
How is a steroid injection performed?
A steroid injection is ideally performed using ultrasound. This procedure helps identify the precise area to be injected, ensuring the medication is delivered accurately and with minimal discomfort. The injection itself only takes a few minutes, with the entire procedure usually taking around 15 minutes.
Once injected, the steroid helps reduce inflammation and relieve pain, making it an ideal solution for those suffering from the discomfort of these conditions. Steroid injections can provide long-term pain relief and can be repeated on a regular basis for those who require it.

The cost of a steroid injection will depend on the type of procedure required and where you are having it done. Private steroid injections in the UK can cost anything from £250 to £1000 and beyond. The high variation for the same procedure especially in areas like London can be largely attributed to the clinic location and whether you are self funding or going through private insurance. Many procedures performed by the same doctors or clinicians using the same medication can be double or triple the cost purely because you are having a private steroid injection in Harley Street or similar locations.
