Compression fracture on thumb, had cortisone shots. Pain recurred. Any advice ?

I was told I have a compression fracture on my thumb . It got caught between a boat and a dock last summer. In December I had a cortisone shot and it improved greatly. By June the pain was back and I had another shot but that has not helped. It is extremely painful in the morning and hurts to write...and I am teacher so I write a lot. Any suggestions or advice?
