.. Do cortizon shots dissolve heal spurs. Other than the cortizon shots that are painful what else can a person get .

Not really: Cortizone (hydrocortisone) is a steroid, and it helps reduce inflammation, so it may help reduce the pain and inflammation in an area, but it does not make problems disappear--they can flare up again if triggered.
