      Does anyone know how effective cortisone injections are for treating subacromial bursitis?
      I’ve had shoulder pain for about 5 months and had a scan which shows bursitis.

      While an injection may cause a decrease in the pain symptoms (no guarantees) it doesn’t really solve any of the problems that are leading to you inflaming your bursa. Make sure you have a plan to correct whatever issue is causing the problem.
