Megan Johnson McCullough —

Tim: My shoulder has given me issues for years. It is my rotator cuff and I really don’t want surgery. As a means to avoid that, I have been getting cortisone shots. Do you think cortisone shots are safe?

Megan: Living in pain and having surgery can be life disruptive. Cortisone shots don’t cure the problem, rather they help alleviate inflammation. The number of shots you receive and their frequency is limited because of potential side effects such as loss of cartilage and joint infection. In general shots should be no less than six weeks apart. If you are feeling pain relief and the body is responding well to these shots, then this may be a suitable option for you to manage pain. Compliment these shots with physical therapy and resistance training done correctly, and I think you are in a good position to keep that shoulder operating and functional.
