Probably best to try other things before Cortisone Shots

Posted by Sue B. on 11/25/98
I had one set of cortisone shots when I was first diagnosed with heel spurs and PF. They didn't help at all--I think they made me worse although apparently they do help some people.

Many peole on this message board have mentioned that the shots can break down the fatty pads and also destroy fascia.

If you check the survey results that Scott did on you will see that there are other things to try before cortisone shots--arch supports, stretching, rest, acupuncture to name a few. Some people like Birkenstock shoes--Arizona style and some people have been helped with glucosamine.

Good luck.
