Answer

In another study, when corticosteroid injection was compared with arm bracing, the use of a corticosteroid injection demonstrated decreased pain at 2 weeks, but there was no difference noted at 6 weeks. [15] There was also no significant difference noted in the type of steroid that was injected.
