... Hi folks, I keep reading about you guys getting cortizone injections and wondered if you all reallise the downside of these?

I'm off to a sports injury physio tomorrow with 2 very sore and inflamed... (21 replies)

... yeah, my doctor has mentioned surgery to me before.

I do have a hand brace that I use sometimes during the day and when I sleep at night. Btw, what's a minny splint (thumb stablizer)? Is it basically a brace just to stablize your... (21 replies)
... cerrrah.....Has your dr discussed surgery? I know mine has said that sometimes the shots only work for awhile, then after that you need surgery to release the stress on the tendon from the shaft (I think that is how he put it to me).

... I was diagnosed with DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis in my left wrist a little over a year ago.

Avoid resistive extension of your... (6 replies)
