For those who have had this procedure, (this is the one where they inject corticosteroid and saline and the idea is to stretch out the joint capsule and in some cases will also pop the capsule which is all the better), I am interested in hearing your experiences. My doctor does them and my therapist thinks it might be helpful for me. However, I'm reading very mixed reviews on degree of success. My questions for those who have had one: 1) Did it help your stiffness and ROM to a significant degree? 2) Did it help your overall pain? 3) In retrospect, would you do it again given your experience?
I have pain in general but not to the degree that others often describe. It does hurt at times and definitely more at night but I consider it manageable pain. It is the stiffness and loss of ROM that is very bothersome to me and the excrutiating pain when I inadvertently push it further than it wants to move.
I would really like to hear of experiences with this procedure.
