Neck was diagnosed in 1981. Back progressively getting worst. I had no pain after the spinal epidural for almost a year after only 1 shot. I have kidney disease so can not take the NASID's. Found Tylenol for Arthitis worked well for a short period of time. Loved the Traction and thought the physical therapy, ice, and exercise worked beautifully. I do not plan on having surgery!
