Re: Shoulder Injuries

soft tissue takes 6 to 8 wks to heal.
cortisone does not promote healing, it may retard it.
overuse of injured soft tissue creates micro tears and new injury, 'resets' the healing calendar back to the start, and creates the likelihood of an acute injury turning chronic.
dude, taking your test on a given date/wk/month is so not worth it!
