I have been diagnosed with DeQuervain's tendinitis

I have been diagnosed with DeQuervain's tendinitis. I have been taking anti inflammatory meds and using a splint. Of course, the dr. wants to give me the cortisone shot. I do not want this. I have heard of a patch that uses electonic pulses to deliver the cortisone. Is this any better than the shot or with less side effects? Where can I find info or a dr. that can help me find the more "natural" remedies you write about, such as exercise, massage and nutrition? Will acupuncture help? 
Thank you, Sheila
