Re: Cortisone : yay or nay?

Cortisone got a bad rap decades ago for degenerating cartilage inside of synovial joints. What people were doing was 2-3 injection a week, for an extended period of time. Doing an injection every 2-3 months, (which is common practice these days), has not been shown to have deleterious effects on articular cartilage.

Injecting the tendon insertion does not come close to the joint anyway.
