Patient :I am a 21 year old young lady. I had a cortisone injection on Friday May 1st. It has been five days and my shoulder pain is the same as prior to the shot. Should I be concerned that the shot has not helped? It is normal to have pain and have not felt any changes five days following this shot. I suffered a shoulder subluxation in October of 2014 and scar tissue has formed in my shoulder. The pain is in the anterior part of my right shoulder.
