Have you been told to get or given a referra lfor a cortisone?
A cortisone injection or CSI is a steroid injection used to reduce pain in musculoskeletal injuries or “worn” joints.
Orchard in 2019 found that although it may alleviate your pain SHORT TERM, patients can suffer a quicker path to joint replacement or speed up the deterioration of soft tissues.

If you HAVE had a cortisone then we need to use this opportunity to strengthen and improve your function long term.
