Re: cortisone shot

In my practice I do not inject the Achilles tendon with cortisone. It can weaken it and if it ruptures, it is a surgical repair.

As far as numbers of shots. There are ALWAYS exceptions to "rules" such as no more than 3 shots in any one area over 1 year. However and infinite number would not be recommended.

I try to evaluate the patient's needs, wants, health area of concern and if the prior injections were of any benefit.
