Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Cortisone Injection
    Not Improved
    Physical Therapy

Numerous lumbar injections, physical therapy, chiropractor, medications nothing seemed to work. My physician really pushed me to have physical therapy and that really did not improve the pain. The therapist that was evaluating me suggeested water therapy and it really worked wonders. Between the medications and the water therapy 3 days a week I have seen a great improvement in the pain and being able to finally get some restful sleep at night.
