Hello greg60.

Spinal injections come in various packages depending on type of pain and where it is.

Has your Consultant or anesthetist said what type he will be doing? Usually this is all discussed well in advance of any procedure.

There is always a risk when injecting in or near the spinal cord...again you should have been told all this.

That was part of my answer...depending on what procedure you are having will produce different outcome!!

Is it facet joints? Or burning nerve endings? Epidural?

I've had both nerve blocks and nerve burns... I prefer nerve burns, they worked better for me. I also had a procedure where they injected steroids; unfortunately, I respond poorly to steroids and endured horrific pain with that one. definitely go for anaesthesia if offered. basically, you go under, they perform the procedure, you come out of it... perhaps you'll be sore for the day, but if it works you can have months of relief. good luck!

These injections are OK to start. Excellent in fact. BUT!

The side effects are over time they break down the bones.Which is not really what one wants eh?

Hi Greg, they work for me! I have injections in my back every six months and I get a lot of relief from them. Good luck!

My chronic lower back and hip pain was down to a vitamin deficiency.Vitamin D3 (the sunshine vitamin) turned my back, hip and several other conditions around overnight. Not saying yours is the same, but another route to check off. A good idea is to get your vitamin D blood test done (and ask for the print out of any bloods done and their ranges for your own records.) My hip pain was so painful I thought I’d need new hips.
