  • Cortisone Shots!

    October 18, 2019

    When you injure a joint and go to a medical doctor, often a cortisone shot is suggested.  Many patients have asked me, over the years, what I think of them.  

    Understanding that sometimes we are desperate, they can be necessary and helpful.  But make no mistake, the shots will make the arthritis worse over time.  

    This isn’t my idea.  It is in the research.  Read this article and beware. 

    I’ve had patients who have had marvelous luck with one steroid shot.  Fabulous!! But keep it to a minimum!
