Frequently Asked Questions
Nerve blocks are relatively safe procedures with minimal side effects. There is a small risk of allergy and infection or slight flare up of pain that can occur immediately or within few days following the procedure. Our Musculoskeletal Specialist team will perform a complete screening prior to your procedure to ensure safety.
There is no need for complete rest, however, we will advise you to reduce your activity level significantly for a week at the least to obtain the best results from the injection.
You should not drive immediately after the injection. Please organise a pick-up or arrange a taxi to return home.
Your appointment will be a “one stop shop” in which our Musculoskeletal Specialist will carry out a physical examination and ultrasound scanning to diagnose your problem. You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss your care with our specialist prior to proceeding with your injection.
The results can last up to 12 months or more. If you are a poor responder for corticosteroid injection then you can have short term pain relief in which case our Musculoskeletal Specialist team might be able to help with your care by advising you alternate procedures.
You can have 3 injections a year but this will depend on health of your joint and your response for previous steroid injection to the same area. Similarly, health of your soft tissue will determine a repeat injection and this will be determined by our Musculoskeletal Specialist through an ultrasound scan for the particular area or a condition.
Local anaesthetics are safe during pregnancy. Corticosteroid injection is known to be safe from 2nd trimester of pregnancy. If you are aware of being pregnant at the time of booking then notify us for pre-injection screening. Corticosteroid injections are safe if breastfeeding.
