Hi. I suffer from feet bursa. Are cortisone injections effective for bursitis? What can I do at home to improve my condition?

Hi. Treatment for bursitis is simple. It includes rest and immobilization of the affected area. It is necessary to apply ice to reduce swelling. People with bursitis are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs relieve pain and reduce inflammation. With a proper treatment bursitis will disappear in a week or two. Cortizone injections may be recommended to relieve inflammation. Usually, one injection is all you need. You may be also advised to exercise and strengthen your muscles in the affected area. What you can do at home? Well, you can apply ice packs and exercise. Use an elastic bandage and apply heat, for up to 20 minutes.
