I haven't had the injections, but have had the iontophoresis treatments along with massage, icing, and ibuprofen. It helped me, but as noted, once you continue to run and inflame the area, the pain returns. The best way I think is to lay off of running (for me that's what caused the problem) and try another sport to let it heal after the treatments. BUT--I am very leery about continued cortisone injections, because there are several cases of different joints of the body deteriorating after several injections!!
