Re: Alcohol injections after Cortisone?

This is by no means absolute- every patient isa different. The alcohol injections can range from 5-7. If there is no response after 3, it probably isn't going to work. As far as "cortisone"- the max is 3 injections. There are numerous potential side effects from each of these.

As far as doing both- I can't answer personally. Usually if the patient has not gotten a favorable response they opt for surgery. You should ask your doctor about his/her experience with doing both.

Worn daily for a few minutes to several hours, the night splint, over time has been clinically proven to reduce the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis and other overuse injuries of the lower leg.
