Re: Top of Foot Pain

A cortisone flare does not happen every time. Having said that, there are no guarantees. I have found from experience that Depo Medrol does this more often than Celestone Soluspan.

A shot of cortisone for a neuroma doesn't always work, but is certainly a conservative option.

Personally, I always try to give the least painful shot so the patient doesn't remember me in a bad light for years to come. I will inject a small amount of local anestheitc first, then leave the needle in and reload with the steroid.

You should discuss your concerns with your doctor. Good luck.

Softens and remove corns in a most comfortable way. It is ideal to help relieve pain on a toe or finger affected by corns, blebs, blisters, hammertoes, calluses and digital traumas.
