Joint Injection

If a health care professional or physiotherapist has diagnosed an inflammation either inside or around one or more of your joints, a highly effective way of treating this inflamation is to inject a mild steroid solution and local anaesthetic into the relevant areas.

The Joint Injection clinic is led by Dr Eeleen Woon, GP.

Clinics are usually held on a Monday afternoon between 3.00pm - 5.30pm at Manor House Glossop.

Referrals are accepted for joint injection / peri-articular injections of :

  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Wrist
  • Finger
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Feet

Referrals will NOT be accepted for:

  • Patients for whom the diagnosis is in doubt
  • Patients for whom a consultant rheumatologist or orthopaedic opinion is required

These patients should be referred to hospital in the usual manner.

Referring health care professionals should complete a servicereferral form and post/fax/email to: -
