Injection-based interventions are a useful addition to the rehabilitation physician’s practice. These can occur in either inpatient or outpatient settings and be for musculoskeletal (e.g. joint/soft tissue injections) or neurological conditions (such as antispasticity injections and nerve blocks). Local steroid injection is a well-proven and effective treatment for focal pain and inflammation, and this chapter covers commonly used steroid injections, as well as different agents and procedures with their indications (including botulinum toxin injection). It provides a guide to the use of appropriate general injection techniques and includes tables showing the dose and duration of action of commonly used steroids and local anaesthetics for injections.
