Don’t Rush into Expensive, Aggressive Treatment - Natural Care is In

Scientists have concluded:
At 4 weeks, there was a significant interaction between corticosteroid injections and physiotherapy (P = .01), whereby patients receiving the placebo injection plus physiotherapy had greater complete recovery or much improvement vs no physiotherapy. If you want to put up with the pain for 6 - 12 months, outcomes are similar in those that had physical therapy versus those that did not. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/1568252
