In brief: Unlikely

Depends. Most shots are for arthtitic conditions (degeneration, inflammation) and in these instances they provide temporary relief.
In bursitis, often just below the knee, it can be a permanent fix.

In brief: It may could

If the knee for example if you inflammation no permanent changes.
Or if you have traumatic injury but no permanent damage. Good luck. Thank you.
