Ultrasound guided injection Clinic

Is your pain not improving with physiotherapy, osteopathy or chiropractic?

Does this sound familiar?

  • You’ve you been diagnosed with arthritis, tendinopathy or bursitis?
  • You’ve been to your GP and tried anti-inflammatories but they don’t help?
  • You’re fed up of NHS waiting lists for physiotherapy?
  • You’ve tried NHS physiotherapy and were underwhelmed by the experience?
  • The exercises haven’t helped your problem?
  • You’ve tried a private osteopath or chiropractor but still no smptom relief?
  • you’RE looking for a more rapid solution for pain relief?

Then you have come to right place. We offer a one stop shop of assessment, scan, prescription and injection.

In a nutshell here’s what you get

  • Same day appointment (subject to availability)
  • Musculoskeletal assessment and ultrasound scan
  • Ultrasound guided injection if clinically appropriate
  • A letter detailing the assessment and scan findings and the injection delivered
  • All this is included for A total fee of £150-350 depending on the injection you require (please see price list page for details) 
  • All injections are performed by an experienced advanced physiotherapist with specialist training in musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound guided injections
  • All prescriptions are made by an independent prescriber to allow them to screen you for any possible medicines interactions and select the most appropriate medication for your injection

At Wandsworth Physiotherapy we understand you want an element of control and choice in your healthcare and our injection clinic offers an alternative, safe and effective way of managing your pain and improving your recovery.

Your therapist may refer you for an injection to help manage your symptoms and compliment the treatment and rehabilitation plan they are giving you. It’s important to remember that injections are an adjunct to treatment, and we will rarely simply provide you with just an injection. This is because without completing your treatment and especially your home exercise plan you are less likely to see improvements in your problem.

We provide injections using ultrasound guidance. This helps to ensure the product that we are injecting ends up in the desired body part or tissue. The efficacy of land-mark guided injection also called blind injections (where no imaging guidance is used) is sub-optimal, often with the substance being injected not ending up in the desired tissue. Therefore, the injection is much less likely to provide you any relief from your symptoms.

As with all injections there are pros and cons as well as side effects this will be etsblaished before your injection so you can make informed conent as to whether you proceed or not.

At Wandsworth Physiotherapy & Osteopathy we're focused on getting you out of pain and back to what you love doing, from simply sitting comfortably to playing with your kids, getting back into the gym or being able to run 5k again, our expert Physiotherapists, Podiatrists & Osteopaths are here to help!

What to expect from your ultrasound guided injection appointment

Call or book your appointment online. We will send you a pre-appointment patient information sheet regarding the injection you have chosen. We will also send you an injection new patient form to fill in. It’s important that you have read this information and filled in the form prior to your appointment as it may mean we can’t proceed with the appointment if you haven’t done these things.

We offer a one stop shop of assessment, scan, prescription and injection.

Your initial appointment with the injection specialist (a physiotherapist) will be 30 minutes. In that time you will be asked to explain your injury, how it happened, how long you have had it and how it makes you feel. You will be asked to set some goals about what you want to achieve from your time spent with them.

Your injection specialist will also run through your past medical history finding out about any medical diagnoses or medicine that you take. This is extremely important as we may or may not be able to proceed with injection based on this.

Next your injection specialist will carry out a physical examination looking at the affected area plus carry out an assessment of your posture and how you move, they will also ultrasound scan the affected area to help diagnose the problem and assess that an injection is the suitable treatment option.

Once we have made a diagnosis, checked your medical history, you have had any side effects of injections explained to you and you have consented to receive an injection we will go ahead with your treatment.

There may be a small chance that we cannot proceed with injection, however we will have done our best to establish this prior to the appointment. If for some reason based on the assessment that an injection is not to be carried out you will be charged a consultation fee but not the full cost of the injection. Reasons that we might not be able to proceed with an injection include:

  • An injection not being appropriate for the condition you have presented with
  • Failure to adequately fill out your past medical history form
  • Failure to have read and understood the injection information sheet sent to you
  • An unexpected or previosuly undisclosed pregnancy
  • Any new or recent infection where you have commenced antibiotics
  • Any undisclosed allergy
  • Any vaccine administerred two weeks prior to the appointment date or intended vaccination 2 weeks after the appointment date

Brilliant all round experience. After sustaining a marathon injury during training Wandsworth Physiotherapy managed to fit me in the next day and was back up and running within 2 weeks after three 30 minute sessions. Gave me exercises to go away and do in my own time too so felt like I was making the most of their and my time too.

These guys are fantastic! Really quick to reply and they found me an appointment on the same day. I've since had regular treatments with Alessio who is excellent, and my torn IT band, shoulder and other ailments are much improved. Brilliant for both sports injuries and wellness.

Gerry Sweetland

Booked an appointment for the same day on a Saturday. Adele has been very welcoming and helpful, providing useful advice as well as efficient treatment. Great local clinic, will definitely come back and recommend.

Jean Reverdy

Steve was excellent. Long term/complex shoulder injury treated over a number of sessions - patient, curious and methodical. Great treatments and programme of exercises and I'm back to pain free swimming.

~ Nick Outlaw

I've been several times for several different problems and Steve has always been excellent. He listens really carefully and asks good questions to find out exactly what's wrong, and is very clear with follow-up exercises to continue the therapy at home. Highly recommend him!

Rogel referred me to a consultant before treating me as he wanted to rule out a frozen shoulder before he started physiotherapy. His suspicion of my having a frozen shoulder was correct. This allowed me to get the correct diagnosis and corresponding treatment done quickly and efficiently.

I can't recommend this place and Physio Shreya enough! 10 weeks go I got referred to Wandsworth Physiotherapy by a friend after I was suffering with chronic neck and back pain. Shreya immediately found the cause, diagnosed me, and assured me of what the next steps would be. Not only does Shreya have healing hands, she continuously helped me mentally. After all of the advice, exercises, and dry needling, I am now pain free and able to return to my everyday activities (including exercise). Thank you Shreya, you are incredible!

This place is great! I got here with a really bad pain in my shoulder and neck and I got better really fast. I got treated by Shreya, who is AMAZING. Really good therapist, doing a mix of techniques to relieve pain, and also really empathetic. She id also specialised in sports, which means she was able to advise on how I can continue my regular workouts, despite my pain. I am always looking forward to my sessions here and I can see great progress with my injury. 10/10 would recommend!

Christina has been treating some issues with my neck, back and shoulders for 18 months now and she is the best physiotherapist I’ve ever had. She is a miracle worker with massage but also educates me about posture, injury prevention and the best forms of exercise and injury care. She is A-MAZING.

I've had about 8 sessions at Wandsworth Physiotherapy. Rogel did an amazing job and has been able to help me with the tendinopathy I've had for about 2 years! He created a plan especially for my own goal. I've had shockwave therapy, some exercises to do and advices on the sport I could do and when. Great place!

Was booked in with Rogel for a shoulder injury that has been a long term problem impacting my ability to do sport. Over 5 sessions I have seen significant improvement and have been given the tools to continue to get stronger. Hoping to book in with him again for a knee injury as well. Great guy and super knowledgeable!

Prarthi has been absolutely fantastic at helping me to recover from a shoulder injury over the last few months. My pain had dramatically reduced after the first session and she has continued to help throughout. She is extremely knowledgeable and has really helped me to understand the mechanics of my injury. I cannot recommend her enough! Thanks so much :)
