Doctor(s),
Are cortisone injections a favorable method for 'heel spur' treatment?

Do yourself a favor and read Scott's book on heel pain on this website. It is the most comprehensive information available. Cortisone injections are one of many different treatment options for heel pain syndrome. However, the number of cortisone injections in one area should be limited to 3 in one year, and the cortisone simply reduces inflammation, therefore is only treating the symptom not the problem.
