After finally curing my sore right shoulder, I've recently developed a stiff neck. I've had an MRI, and just this past week had a consultation with a neurosurgeon. After he looked at my MRI, he said I had 3 things going on, none of which surgery could improve: Arthritis, some disc de-generation, and bone spurs. He just recommended taking over the counter meds like Advil. He did think cortisone injections might help. so I am having one in 2 weeks. When I mentioned that I swim regularly, he did say to keep doing it, it will keep the muscles looser.
Just curious, has anyone had cortisone injections for this issue, and did they help?
