We only do injections when patients been seen and referred by the Orthopaedic Assessment service or the Spinal team for those patients who have defined pathology and are on a surgical pathway. Therefore, for diagnostic purposes.
Some patients have previously had on going injections from other services and may expect or ask for further injections or interventions. We would value your participation in having discussions and explaining about realistic expectations and when they are indicated.
You may find our medication information useful during these discussions: Management of Nerve Type Pain, and Medication for Long Term Pain
If patients are still experiencing pain despite these explanations and trialing medication they may want to opt into our service. Considering referring someone to our service?
