Injection Information

You may be offered a steroid injection into a joint if you have rheumatoid or inflammatory arthritis or persistent pain from osteoarthritis.

You can find more information about the risks and benefits of steroid injections and after care by reading this leaflet

If you have any questions your health professional will be happy to discuss these at your appointment.  If you have an infection or are taking warfarin it may not be possible to have a joint injection so seek advice.
