Knee Injections - their benefits and types


This week we spoke with

Dr Andrew Jackson to discuss the benefits and differences of Knee Injections.

Dr Andrew Jackson has a special interest in MSK: care of Joints, Bones and Muscles.

Whether you have an Injury or a longstanding condition, knee injections could be beneficial to your situation.







So, what types of injections are available?

  1. The first Injection, and most commonly used, is a steroid, injected directly into the area helping as an anti-inflammatory, which helps relieve pain

  2. This other option is a Viscosupplementation, which lubricates the area and alleviates pain. This second option is mostly recommended for osteoarthritis

Do these injections hurt?

As with every other type of injection, there is a needle involved so generally there can be mild discomfort on the injected area and a bit of swelling which over time will disappear.
