    Steroid Joint Injections

    Joint pain accounts for up to 35% of all GP consultations, and it can be the result of a variety of things; such as injury, arthritis or an inflammatory condition.

    At YourGP we can offer a potential treatment for these issues, with Dr Victoria McBride. She offers steroid joint injections, which can effectively reduce inflammation and therefore reduce pain.

    How Steroid Joint Injections Work

    Patients will attend an initial consultation, during which Dr McBride will take a history of the problem, do a full examination, assess whether a joint injection is suitable and decide if an x-ray is required first.

    The initial consultation usually lasts around 15 minutes and the joint injection appointment itself will last no more than 30 minutes. It is important to remember that steroid joint injections are not appropriate for use in every patient.

    Dr McBride can use joint injections to ease pain in the shoulder, elbow, knee, and plantar fascia. However, patients can only have one joint injected per session. She does not inject wrists and hips, as these generally require ultrasound guidance.

    A steroid joint injection is not a curative treatment and it is for pain control only. For more information, please read our blog on steroid joint injections.

    If an x-ray is required before your joint injection can take place, we would refer you to a private clinic for this and the price of this will be explained at the time.

    (When you book your appointment we will ask for a £50 deposit to secure the appointment time. The £50 will be deducted from the final cost of your consultation.)


    I was visiting with my son from California, US and he became ill. It was such a relief to find you and receive such expert care. He was diagnosed with bronchitis and we were given antibiotics right on the spot. My son was better in a few days and able to enjoy the remainder of our stay. Thank you very much. I highly recommend AND the location is beautiful. For any out-of-town folks it is a must-see!
