I 'be seen an Osteopath as recommended. He gave a cortisone shot in 2 separate locations on back. It worked for about 2 months.thereafter same symptoms reappeared. Went back to sameDoctor and gave me the same thing, this time to no avail. He gave me a prescription for Tylenol #3 . Then sent me to aPhysical therapist for muscle strengthening . This helped me a bit and able to manage pain better.
