What should you expect after the injection?
After the injection, there is an increasing discomfort for approximately 1-3 days. The positive effects of the injection can occur within one week after the injection. This usually happens with torn tendons/ligaments and bursitis. With an osteoarthritic condition, it takes about 8-12 weeks to respond. We recommend normal activity with no extra exercise for the first 48 hours. After 3-4 days, you will start light exercise (or physical therapy) progressing to full activity in four to eight weeks.
