Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Does your GP do joint injections?

Also if you have tendon rupture, that can get worse with steroid injection.

However, this can be tried for bad osteoarthritis.

Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
