Hi I get Bursitis often and I finally gave in and got a steroid injection into it they did it via a ultra sound so knew where to put the injection , it did hurt but only for the last bit of of the needle, must admit I didn't get any relief for the first few days as it just hurt, then I don't know if it actually helped over the weeks or it got better by its self but about 3 weeks after the injection it started slowly getting better.
I have had steroid injections in other places that have worked very well so I guess its luck of the draw
