NOT A GUARANTEE
shot can be very helpful, but not a guarantee for success.
Sometimes we give a 2nd, maybe a 3rd, but if three are not helping, 4,5,6 etc. probably won't. If used properly, with appropriate amounts, it's fairly safe, but does have side effects; talk to your doctor about this. The shot should also be used in combination w/ NSAID's, stretching, inserts, or taping, to name four.
