Our expert says:
I'm not a huge fan of injections, mostly because they treat the symptom and so sure, your knee will feel ready for training again, but the underlying problem (the friction) may still be present. So you can run, with the risk that it gets even worse!
I'd say that you should continue what you're doing, also look at some strength exercises that will help once you do start running again and if you do really feel the need to get running, then the injection is OK, but just don't confuse the absence of a symptom with the absence of a problem! in other words, keep doing what you're doing regardless, plus the strength training!
