Just wondering how long after a steroid injection should I wait before foam rolling or having deep tissue massage on the same area? I would have thought a minimum of 24hrs from a shot that didn't give any post injection pain?
I foam roll almost immidiately after an injection. Works great at reducing injection site pain. Just be gentle. If you waited until injection pain I would not do it. Lots of pain and no benefit.
I've had a Thai massage a couple of hours after injecting.
It does not matter. I have deep tissue work every week where I inject.
