quarterzone injections

Hi my name is Stella
I have been diagnosed with bursitis in both my shoulders and also arthritis in the right shoulder, tendonitis in my elbows.
I have been told by my doctor that I may need a course of injections, I have had 2 quarterzone injections in my left elbow and 1 injection to my left shoulder (3 yrs ago) those injections did not work, and I really do not know anything about the injections my doctor said to check on the net.
Could you please explain how the injections is supposed to work.
I have also been told stories that you should not have these injections, Doctors says yes and quite a few patients say no.
I am very confused on this. Any help will be appreciated

Stelebelle, the cortisone is supposed to suppress the inflammation in the affected areas and then hopefully you won¡¯t have a problem again. There are pros and cons, and taking them too often are definitely bad for you. The best would be to see an orthopaedic surgeon and get his opinion on it. Good luck.
