Your questions, answered

What are facet joint injections?

These injections contain a mixture of a numbing agent and a corticosteroid, administered into the facet joints to reduce pain and inflammation under image guidance. They can provide lasting back pain relief.

What conditions can an epidural help with?

Epidurals can manage various types of pain, including lower back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, and conditions causing nerve root irritation.

Are steroid injections safe for all types of joint pain?

Steroid injections are generally safe and have been considered so for a very long time. Our specialists will evaluate your specific condition to determine the best course of treatment.

How does Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment work?

PRP uses a sample of your own blood, concentrated with platelets to promote healing in the affected area, reducing pain and accelerating recovery. It is a simple outpatient procedure which does not require you being admitted to the hospital.

Will I need more than one treatment session?

The number of sessions varies for each patient and depends on the nature and severity of the pain. Some people have a stronger, longer lasting response than others, which creates this variability. Our team will provide you with a treatment plan which is suited to your needs.

Can I return to my normal activities after these treatments?

Most patients can resume their activities the next day, but our doctor will provide individualised instructions based on your treatment and condition.
