"Some people do find it relieves the pain quite a bit but the risk in my opinion isn't worth it. If it does relieve the pain, that is all it's doing. Doesn't actually help heal the underlying issue. It can cause infection and can cause…"

"I had one shot a long time ago in my neck which helped ease the pain for a couple weeks, but really only masks the problem. It doesn't heal anything. You need to get to the root of the problem. If getting shots, make sure to still focus on…"

"Cortisone works by permanently degenerating tissue. It is definitely fragile after a shot. Whether or not to tape has a lot to do with your personal genetics. How tight are your ligaments? Also, most docs won't give you more than 3 shots in a…"

"Get your foot taped. According to studies, the fascia is fragilized in the 2 weeks following the shot. Ice plenty if the shot causes a flare and take it easy. According to all the Mds I've seen, it's true though that the shot should work…"

"Put on your big girl pants and get the shot. My doctor does it so fast you barely know it. It is usually so painful that the shot is a relief. I don't let him tape up my foot after the shot. I walk on it afterward and it usually works much…"

"I got 2 shots (the first one did nothing as he didn't hit the right spot) 2nd (different dr) helped but only for a short time and yes it hurts. It was a last resort for me, tried orthotics, physio, stretches, acupuncture, brace etc etc I then…"

"Ive had over 12 shots in each feet over two years. My left foot took the shots well and the pain went away for about 6 months. But it came back and now does not respond. The right foot never felt better. It hurts but you can drive. Take some motrin…"

Mary replied to Mary Hocker's discussion foot injections
"It's nice your shot is imagery guided, makes it much safer! Do ice on the same and next days, take it easy for 2 weeks as the shot can weaken the zone, and keep up with your PF stretches even if the pain eases up as the shot adresses the…"
