Dr. Darrow talks about this in every broadcast he does on radio. He's not making it up.

Steroids damage joint cartilage | Dr. Marc Darrow is a Stem Cell, PRP,Prolotherapy Expert in Los Angeles.

When I went to hospital via ER last Dec., the cortisone shot was about the first thing the MD's did on my knee.

They are very helpful usually but most docs will only do 1-2 per yr due to your info....and won't do it yr after yr either.

I had ONE for rotator cuff tear, worked great.

I've known this for years. My doctor told me this. That's why they will limit the number they will give you.


Sometimes they work. It worked for my trigger thumb.


Sometimes they don't. Didn't work for my carpal tunnel or my back. Surgery fixed both of those.

DH has had a couple in his shoulder and they helped a lot. My late husband had one in his shoulder for bursitus, and it only helped a little.

The article was specific to osteoarthritis and knees though.
