View Full Version : cortisone injection in my shoulder

I recently had a coritsone injection in my shoulder for tendonitis caused by rowing. My doctor said to wait 10 days before rowing again but I noticed on your site it mentioned during healing there shouldn't be total rest and loading the tendon but not overloading it is important in the healing process. How do you know how much is too much in terms of loading the tendon and should I be rowing lightly to help with the healing?

Hi there,

My sports physician normally suggests a couple of days rest. You could do other things like going to the gym.

Good luck !
