Re: Cortisone : yay or nay?

Look for a doctor, most likely will be a chiropractor that is certified to do A.R.T(Active Release Treatment), or Graston. Those are 2 of the most common soft tissue techniques that are very effective. You can also look for a doctor that uses low level laser therapy.
Cortisone shot is an option, one shot may keep the inflammation away for years, but if you need more than 1 or 2, the shots will definitely speed up the degeneration of the joint.
If you need a hand looking for a qualified doctor, email me. Drbstrump@aol.com.
I'm a chiropractor in a gym, and treat people with those types of injuries often.
