Treatment Ratings

    Improved
    Cortisone Injection

Diagnosed as sciatica. Tried physical therapy and chiropractic with no relief. 3 epiduril injections, 3 weeks to a month apart. Initial relief for short period with 1st 2 injection. More relief with 3rd injection. Hopefully I can become more active to lose more weight and improve muscle strength in lower back.
