Hi

thanks for requesting me

Injections do not fix discs.

You need extensive manual therapies along with injections and the like.

Contact an MD specialist of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

This doctor will set up a program to try and avoid further surgery.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
