Will a cortisone shot heal a sprained (jammed) toe?
I injured it almost three months ago and I still can't play soccer!!!!

Charles-CeeJay_UK_ USA/CheekyLad
I would certainly have it looked at.
A sprain should be long healed by now. Otherwise, cortisone will reduce inflamation.

--That Cheeky Lad

cortisone only reduces the inflamation, it will not correct an injury. You need an xray to see if it is fractured or dislocated, etc.

Debi in LA
Baby, it's probably broken. A sprain heals in a couple of days. Go get an xray. If you have insurance, xrays are free (after co-pay).

Cortisone is used to decrease inflammation. If it is truly a sprain you probably won't be able to find a doctor that will inject one. Some sprains take longer to heal than actual breaks. If you are really taking care of it (staying off of it, elevating it when not in use and NOT playing soccer) and it has not gotten any better after 6 weeks you need to see a doctor.
