Re: next step

I've had cortisone injected in both shoulders and my elbow but never my back. It helped me a good deal.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: next step

Yeah, about nine of 'em in neck and back over the years. Didn't really help me, but I had real problems that only surgery could help as it turned out. You need to go thru them prior to surgery as they are less invasive, less costly and less dangerous than surgery. If they don't work, you tried. They're not real bad if you have a good dr. doing the injections. For me, the shooting of 25 ml of stuff into a 5 ml space was the most uncomfortable. Really not that bad. Surgery is much worse, but beneficial if necessary. I know many people with relief from both.

Had one in a shoulder with bursitis one time that worked great before I got out of the parking lot. Try it.
