If the pain has been there for a month already without improving I think the injection is indicated. Let an experienced orthopedic surgeon do it. They usually mix local anaesthetic with the cortisone they inject and it usually works well. Treatment with heat, ice, ultrasound and stretching by a physiotherapist may also be useful.
