|Subject: ||RE: Tibialis Anterior Tenosynovitis|
Thanks for the advice. If its not better by next week, my doctor will be giving me a cortisone shot. Hopefully that helps.
Is your doctor a sports medicine person who has a lot of experience treating runners?
Cortisone will definitely make anything that is inflamed feel better, but steroids weaken tendons. You are risking rupture by doing that, in my opinion. Be really sure that is the right thing to do - sometimes a quick fix ends up causing major complications.
To combat message board spam (by non runners). We are making people answer a brief question before they can post on a thread that is over 20 days old.
If you answer this question you should be able to post.
