My ankle always hurts-inflammation. Would a cortisone injection help?

Cant say w/out exam: BUT, cortisone shots help best when there is an acute inflammation that didn't go away but should have. 1) inflammation 2) from something that is more than what you will do daily after the shot worked (otherwise the pain comes right back immediately). 3) in the joint and not the muscle. 4) staying without dwindling for a week at least. ...Read more

40mg injection depo medrol in ankle today. How long until pain/swelling from injection subsides and positive side affects/inflammation improvement?

I rolled my ankle in december, kept playing and it got swollen up my doctor said its inflammation but it still hurts today. Did I do permanent damage?

Possibly: If you are still having pain with activity you may have exacerbated the inflammation or developed an additionall injury by continuing to play on it. Pain after a sports injury is a signal to take it easy. See your doctor to be reevaluated. ...Read more

Tendonitis : Tendonitis can be very frustrating. Tendons do not receive the same nice blood supply as bones do, so they can take a long time to heal. And the ankle tendons take even longer because we're using them to walk while we attempt to heal. The single best way to treat a tendonitis is to rest the tendon, and nothing rests it more than a nice hard cast for 4-8 weeks. Yes, i know that is something no one wants or is even something that's practical to do, but if you can tolerate this, it does work better than anything else, albeit a high price to pay for relief. Acupuncture will also probably help, but nothing beats simply not using the tendons. I would not recommend physical therapy, at least not until you've healed sufficiently. The last thing you need to heal is to move it around. But once healed, especially after coming out of a cast, physical therapy will work wonders in getting your muscles toned back up and strong again. Finally, given that i don't know if it was an injury that precipitated your pain, i would wonder whether the bulk of your pain is due to tendonitis or something else that's yet to be discovered. If you don't seem to be improving, perhaps an MRI would disclose a tendon tear, which would easily explain your lack of progress. Hope this helps. Feel better. ...Read more
