Hi again -

yes these injections may help some but depending on what is diagnosed these injections may not work. And these have been around for many years as I was getting these injections back in 2005 and in researching these have been around a lot longer.

Having herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and/or severe chronic pains (as I have) these injections will not "heal" but may help reduce inflammation and pain for a while as they are steroid injections. However, being examined by a spine specialist and getting a proper diagnosis to determine what treatment options are best, is the way to go before having injections done.

thanks again for sharing with us.
