I was given injections of “Diprospana” at the heel spur. What I just tried - physiotherapy, ointment, pills, traditional methods. So much so that she could not walk at all, had to stay in bed for several days. As a result, the surgeon gave directions to these injections. It was scary, of course, but I did decide. I will say right away that these injections are very painful - I could hardly wait for the procedure to finish, even though it lasts no more than a minute. The very next day I was able to get out of bed and step on the heel, without experiencing absolutely any pain. As for the side effects, I noticed only a certain soreness on the first day after the injection, but the doctor said that this is normal. No more negative manifestations I had.

I am a professional athlete, and all sorts of diseases of the musculoskeletal system are not at all rare for me. Injections of "Diprospana" had to be made when the doctor made the diagnosis "bursitis". The feeling, of course, is not the most pleasant, but in general I can not say that it was very painful. Most importantly, the drug is very effective - after two injections, I fully recovered and was able to continue training in a gentle manner. If you suddenly need to do them again, I definitely will not refuse. Anton, 22 years old, Sterlitamak
