Need Treatment For Shoulder Bursitics

I have shoulder bursitics for the past few months and was under Physio therapy treatment, took Diclofenac 50 mg. twice a day for the past 2 months but no relief, cream too to used It on my shoulder. I am 65+ and have been advised by my Dr. to go for Cortisone Injection, but am scared after hearing about the side effects and hasn t helped most. Please advise. Thanks.

Sir need to find out cause for bursitis like your sugar levels, professional life, any history of trauma. When you are not getting relief from conservative treatment better go ahead with shoulder arthroscopic surgery which is key hole surgery so that v can visualise other pathology in shoulder& same time can excise bursa & even recovery will be quicker. Thanks.
