Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Cortisone Injection
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Massage, Acetaminophen, Stretching
    Not Improved
    Physical Therapy, Brace, Heat

The cortisone shot seemed to speed up the healing. I use a massage machine for 15 min two times a day called Sunpentown Healthy Swinger. The pain along with stabbing spasms lasted two weeks. Am on the mend at present. Still have some tightness in lower back, but expect that to go away slowly with additional sessions on the "swinger"
