How might a steroid injection help me?
The guidance regarding the safe and effective use of Corticosteroids is continually changing. Our team are continually advancing their professional development on the use of steroids in clinic. During your initial assessment we will gather information regarding your suitability ahead of planning any intervention utilising steroid injection therapy. In some cases, steroids may not settle the symptoms as we expect and may reduce their effectiveness if used repeatedly over time. The current guidance does NOT recommend more than 3 injections over the course of 12 months with no less than a 6-week interval in between.
There can be side effects associated with Steroid injections and so it is imperative that you take advice from your Podiatrist following your injection. You will be reviewed 6 weeks following your injection and will be advised on any activity modification required post injection as well as any other complimentary therapies that may be required.
