Hi guys, yes I'm back again, and guess what, with another question yet again. I finally saw my pain specialist today, and along with several other hopefully good suggestions on how to deal with my back pain, she suggested shots of human growth hormone. Has anyone had this procedure done?? Or heard of anyone who has?? My doc has only done the procedure a few times, but has had atonishing results from it. Just curious. She's also going to see if my insurance will approve a tens unit. Got my fingers crossed. Hope everyone is feeling good and having a good week. Thanks for any advice.

Hello.

I had never heard of this treatment, so I searched the internet. Got several hits. Here is a link to an article on the subject that looks pretty good: http://www.articlesbase.com/health-articles/growth-hormone-possible-treatment-for-back-and-joint-pain-1573504.html

Hope this helps.
