Certainly, its a good anti inflammatory medicine

It may well help as kaismamma said but is primarily prescribed for Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis and is meant for short term use.

Maybe, more appropriately, a cortisone injection into and around the bursa is called for. I found it absolutely miraculous. See your doctor as he can probably do that for you in his office (they give you the script which you get filled and then go back to the doctor and he will do it). If you have a large, heavy build or large muscles it may need to be performed with ultrasound guidance to correctly guide the needle to the exactly right location.

Good luck, because it won't get better without treatment or really extended rest. If cortisone works effectively for you, you could be pain free in 24 to 48 hours.

Good luck because bursitis gives that nasty persistent pain or discomfort that you never seem to be able to escape from.
