Musculoskeletal Injection Therapy

We provide a comprehensive range of non-surgical therapies to alleviate pain, reduce stiffness, and enhance mobility. Skyline Medical & Aesthetic Clinic provides the very latest treatments, including injections, innovative injections to cushion and lubricate the joints, orthotics, and physical therapies to alleviate pain without the need of medication or surgery.

Ultrasound guidance is used for every joint injection to ensure optimal outcomes and exact targeting of the treatment. Our aim is primarily to reduce your pain, improve movement and make a real difference to your quality of life.

Our Injectable treatments include:

PRP injections

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a treatment for pain and swelling in your joints or soft tissues. By processing a blood sample to separate and concentrate the platelets and plasma, your consultant can treat your injured joint or inflammatory tendon with platelet-rich plasma injections. PRP injections are an alternative to surgery for some patients, as they harness your body’s natural healing ability to treat a variety of ailments such as osteoarthritis, tendinopathies, and restore injured or overused tendons, ligaments, and joints.

Arthrosamid injections

Arthrosamid is a non-degradable intra-articular polyacrylamide hydrogel injection, to cushion the joint, resulting in a reduction in pain, stiffness, and improved movement. Arthrosamid is most commonly used to treat knee osteoarthritis and provides safe, effective, and long-lasting pain relief. A single injection can relieve the pain and stiffness reduction for up to two-year follow-up period.

Cortisone/Steroid injections

A cortisone steroid injection offers pain relief from inflammatory signs, such as joint pain, soft tissue pain, swelling, and joint stiffness. For patients with rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of inflammatory arthritis, injected steroids are frequently advised.

Hyaluronic Acid injections

An ultrasound-guided hyaluronic acid injection contains a naturally occurring component of synovial fluid. Hyaluronic Acid Injection works through promoting lubrication, the growth of new tissues and reduce inflammation and pain Hence, it acts as a shock absorber to control joint & tendon symptoms. Ostenil Plus, a hyaluronic acid injection, can help reduce the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis.

Steroid Injection Appointment Process

1. Assessment

First we examine your area of pain and provide a preliminary diagnosis

2. SCAN

We then perform an Ultrasound Scan so we can assess the root of pain and see beneath the surface

3. Options

We can then discuss the diagnosis and treatment options with you

4. Procedure

If appropriate, there may be an injection that can reduce the pain and help you recover faster

5. Report

We will provide you with a report of any procedure and findings for your GP or Specialist. You will also be sent advice on aftercare of the condition

Before the procedure, all will be explained to you during your consultation, including side effects, risks, and benefits.  You will be given an opportunity to discuss any other questions or concerns you may have. If there are any changes in your health or circumstances, you must inform the clinician before the injection.

If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP for a consultation. You can simply refer yourself* and book an appointment.

If you have health insurance (e.g. Vitality, Axa Health, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation before any treatment.
