Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, Thank you for your question.
Have you seen the orthopedic surgeons?
Given the fact he has given you a cortisone injection. I would have complete rest for 1 to 2 days and then return to gentle exercise
As any form of running / golf will put strain on your shoulder.
Yes even running, as the shock will travel up to the shoulders, have complete rest for around 2 days and then start getting back into gentle exercise
You will need to see how things go and whether the cortisone injections do re-leave the pain within your shoulder joint. If not you will require a referral to the orthopedic surgeons, so they can further assess the irritation.
If the PT has said that golf is okay within your case, then she has your full case notes, so although I would suggest taking it easy for at least 2 days, Golf is not a huge strain and could be done.
Yes golf is less than running, I would avoid running, as the strain from this would be damaging for you
Running would be okay after 2/3 days rest.
You just need to give the area time to rest and then you can resume normal activity.
Yes, that would be the way forward, and running can be resumed 2/3 days after the injection
If you could leave a positive rate below and any further questions can be asked at any time
