Do not do any rigorous activity for the first day after your injection. Take it easy. You can return to your normal activities the next day. Do not drive the day of the injection if you have had any form of anesthesia.
You can continue your regular diet and medications immediately.
In some cases, it may take up to a week for the steroid to begin working. If you don’t feel better within the first two weeks, see your doctor to discuss different treatment options. If platelet rich plasma is used, please allow for 6-8 weeks to see if the injection works.
