Do you or have you ever suffered with heel pain? Has the thought of a cortisone injection to treat your heel pain ever crossed your mind? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, then this important article could make a world of difference to you.

If you rely solely on a cortisone injection to relieve you of your heel pain and not get to the cause of it, not only will it come back but other reasons why it is a bad idea are:

- It creates an entry site for a possible infection to creep in. If an infection gets into your foot, your heel pain will be the least of your worries.
- It’s only masking the symptoms. The pain will return worse.
- It can sometimes result in irreversible skin and nerve damage.
- It decreases the integrity of the tendon making it weak so rupture is a real possibility (on the upside once it’s ruptured, you cant rupture it anymore)
- A foreign substance is being administered into your body.
- It’s not treating the underlying cause – full stop and end of conversation!
