Dr Z, RE cortisone shot for capsulitisPosted by Susan on 1/24/05 at 10:35 (167810)
You said that you've done alcohol injections for capsulitis. In your opinion are these better than cortisone? Are there fewer side effects than cortisone?

If there is severe arthritis in the joint and you have had multiple steriod injections this is when I do Alcohol injections. They are excellent for any type of neuritis associated with a capsulitis. There are fewer side effects with the alchol injections especially if you have had multiple steriod injections already. There is nothing wrong with a steriod injection.
