kortison shot against inflammation ?
hey bros, had an inflammation in my right shoulder and yesterday my doctor gave me a kortison shot.
has anyone had any kortision shots and if so did they work out fine ? coz ive already tried resting the shoulder, using Voltaren tabs, ketoprofen and all that stuff, nothing helped, oh and if it did work out for you after how many days or so did u notice any results ?
thnx for any help

Those shots will alleviate the pain for a while but you cannot use cortison long term.

so its just for the pain?? so it does pretty much the same stuff as a painkiller ?

It will make you pain free but that does not mean your problem is gone. Frequently guys will return to working out heavy after a cortisone shot only to have the pain come back worse after the effects of the cortisone shot wear off. Try to work on alleviating the problem not the symptoms.

No it is more than a pain killer, but it does mask the pain well.
How does the cortisone injection help?
Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication. Cortisone is not a pain relieving medication, it only treats the inflammation. When pain is decreased from cortisone it is because the inflammation is diminished. By injecting the cortisone into a particular area of inflammation, very high concentrations of the medication can be given while keeping potential side-effects to a minimum.

i asked the doctor he said after about 1 week - 10 days i can return to the gym, but that kinda didnt sound right, i mean ive been resting for over 2-3 months coz of the injury. for how long would you say i need to rest after the shot ?

If you can stand it a month shouldn't hurt, no need to agitate a healing tissue.
