Cortizone injections

Posted by Felicia V. on 9/21/04 at 09:50 (160253)

My son hurt his ankle and heel during football. His trainer would like for him to have a cortizone injection because he does not feel it is healing like it should. What are the benefits of a cortizone injection and what are the disadvantages? Thank You Felicia V.

Here's an interesting discussion on cortisone. It explains how the body heals.
