For specific conditions, your doctor may want to rule out any possibility of a ligament or tendon tear or rupture as cortisone injections can worsen these injuries. New or worsening pain needs to be fully assessed before pursuing additional treatment. If a tear or rupture is present, cortisone can weaken tissue and prolong healing. Once your doctor determines no rupture or tear is present, additional corticosteroid can be considered.
