I had 2 in my shoulder (different areas) recently and they were very successful. Of course I have no idea how long it will last, but I’m grateful for the relief I have.

Key line from that link:
"The study was not a clinical trial, and that is its main limitation, Azar pointed out: The patients' complications cannot be definitively attributed to corticosteroids."

Sounds like a true clinical trial is needed.

I have arthritis in my knee. I had 1 steroid injection. It didn't do a thing. So, I stay active, make decent food choices and had physical therapy once. That really helped but was too expensive for me to continue.
