Doctor,
Iwas wondering what are the side effects of a cortizone shot!
Thank you.

Hi

Pain during the injection after the injection. Repeated local steriod injections at the same area of the plantar fascia can cause rupture of that tendon and or fascia. If the problem is acute a single steriod injection could bring complete relief. Very important to get early treatment along with orthosis, physical therapy , taping and stretching
