She had talked to the producers of Strictly Come Dancing and given them an insight about what she may not be able to do. She told The Sun UK:

“I told Strictly bosses, ‘You do realize I won’t be able to do one of these steps.’”

Prior to the injection, Anneka Rice had revealed that she had taken physiotherapy for the injured shoulder for nearly 6 weeks so that she recovers for the show. But it did not help much. Hence she took to this quick-relief injection and it has helped her.
