I have osteoarthritis in my lumbar area with radiculpathy(that's the summation diagnosis I rec'd). I am now 50yo although this began nearly 15 yrs ago. It did not become unbearable until about fall of 2009. I became increasingly aware of my physical limitations/restrictions.

What other suggestions has your Dr offered to you? What type of Dr are you seeing? What types of testing have you had, if any?

Even my mom had arthritis of spine, a spine surgeon suggested to undergo surgery, however the risk failure was high, so we went for SPMF treatment at SBF healthcare now she had stopped all her pain medications and she is doing fine. The treatment was non-invasive and painless.

My mother-in-law had a degenerative disc. She had been in pain for 1 1/2 years. She had a surgical procedure done and is thrilled and painless. (Not everyone has the same results. I understand your concern.)

My dad has osteoarthritis in his knees and shoulders, not to mention scoliosis. A friend told me about a homeopathic pain relief lotion that has worked. After a few applications, his pain was significantly reduced. Now he applies it morning and night. www.PainLube.com Use Promo Code 72346 for FREE shipping & a gift. It has helped my dad so much, I decided to share this with other people. **This lotion may be an option. It helped my dad a lot. For self application to the back area, I recommend the roll-on.
