For decades, injections of cortisone were used by medical doctors to help reduce pain. But what if the pain returns? How often can a person be injected with a steroid to reduce pain? What if cortisone can’t be done or no longer works? Is surgery necessary? Maybe you have already talked to a surgeon, and they told you surgery wouldn’t help. So, what then? More medication? You may have been warned that more medication could be harmful, so they better not be too strong or too much! We understand your frustration.
At National Spine Care, patients are asking us about non-surgical and drug-free alternatives to help reduce their pain. In response, we are pleased our clinical staff includes Sports and Exercise Medicine Physicians to consult on all available non-surgical treatment options.
