Need help. I run a kicking academy for football kickers and punters. I have a kicer who is having a quad problem when he kicks. He is in college right now, and has to kick through the pain for the next 4 weeks. I am wondering if there is an injectable pain relief/mask like cortisone that could be used to help him get through this period. It could cost him a scholarship. All doctors have told him that he will just have to fight through it and strengthen after spring ball.
With him starting out on a career in football I would suggest he try to do what he can to avoid using cortisone unless it is necessary. It may help him but I believe he would be better off just working out and strengthening his quads instead of using medications.
