Customer Question

I have l5/s1 nerve damage, have had 2 fusions. It has also migrated to my hip/groin and I am told to endure the pain as long as possible and will need a replacement. I also have neck pain and will need surgery there. I have been in constant pain for 13 years and take a lot of pain killers. I need help.

we can't give pain medications to clients over the internet.

have you consulted with a pain management doctor?

you may benefit from a implanted spinal stimulator for your lower back pain.

you may benefit from a steroid injection into your hip.
