With steroid injections most patients will find cure in 12 to 18 months. If there is no relief still, surgery can be attempted for relief although nerve damage in tat area is a common complication. Nowadays Cold laser treatment is finding success in causing great relief. You can discuss this with your Rheumatologist for further enquiry for what best suits your condition.
