Treatment Ratings

    Not Improved
    Cortisone Injection

I have tried every treatment under the sun for 18 years. P.T. helps somewhat but the pain is always there. I have 7 herniated disks, stenosis , degenerated disks...had spinal fusion 11 years ago that made me hurt more but in a different way. Doctor wants to do two more surgeries but I'm not sure about trying again. Accupuncture works for a short time but is really expensive to keep going back. Low doses of opioid and canna oil help me to get by. Daily exercise and eating clean help also but I'm still in a lot of pain.
