    Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Cortisone Injection, Strengthening Exercises

I have just recently had spinal injections for my Lumbar Stenosis and collapsed disks. It has eased pain but when I aggravate it by playing golf it does return at a lower pain level and quicker recovery time. I will more then likely need a Spinal Laminectomy at some time in near future but this has worked for me right now and allows me good sleep and ability to do as I want in moderation for now. I am 69. I also do 45 minutes of stretching exercises everyday to keep limber and build up back and core muscles to assist back. I walk 3 - 4 miles everyday also.
