Stretching After A Cortisone Injection For Your Frozen Shoulder
Imflamation in shoulder and arm muscles for 10 months, Doing a Depo-Medrol injection in shoulders what's my next step if no sucess with injections.
Physical therapy: Intense physical therapy is the next step. That may sound like it would hurt more than help, but nothing is further from the truth. A properly supervised therapy program including stretching, range of motion, heat or ultrasound therapy and strengthening may be more curative long term than the shots anyway. Occasionally, surgery is needed if nothing else is helping. ...Read more
Freezing is to mean turning liquid into solid form by lowering the temperature. Water begins to freeze at 32 degree f or 0 degree celsius. Freezing reduces the movement of the substance/object--solid. Also commonly used in daily communication--police says to a perpetraitor "freeze" and hopefully the bad boy/girl stays solid/still (just for fun :-)). Have ...Read more
Yes: Many shoulder impingement sypmtoms are due to dys-synchronization of the shoulder muscles. See a pt or physical medicine doc to get more guidance.

Will bursitis under shoulder blade heal and go away forever with a local cortisone shot or is a cortisone shot temporary? Bursitis is due to trauma.
My podiatrist recommends a cortisone shot for my plantar fasciitis after 4 weeks and 2 weeks on naids. Are cortisone shots safe or should I continue with stretching?
Stretching: I would personally exhaust all other treatments before doing that. Stretching especially overnight is crucial to get plantar fasciitis under control (even if you decide to get the shot).

I have impingement, bursitis and tendonosis of the rotator cuff. Can't have steroid injections, is surgery only option or will PT help?
I will get cortisone for frozen shoulder friday. It will be guided into the joint. Will it also help with my impingement/tendinitis/bursitis?
Hard to say...: All of the conditions that you mentioned are distinctly different from one another. A frozen shoulder would not typically be treated with steroid injections. Usually, physical therapy or manipulation under anesthesia (basically, wrenching your frozen shoulder loose while you're sedated) is necessary to treat this. Some impingement caused by bursitis or tendinitis is improved with steroid shots. ...Read more

Can a dexamethasone injection in the gluteus muscle for rotator cuff injury make shoulder pain worse?

An injection into the muscle typically stays right where you put it - the muscle . So the injection did not make it worse ...Read more
