Results Are In: Steroid Injections Don’t Work for Back and Leg Pain

Patient’s considering a steroid injection to ease their back or sciatica pain should stop and think again Mk 677 for sale. Results from a new study from the George Institute for Global Health in Sydney, Australia found that corticosteroid injections into the spine had no long or short term effect on sciatica or back pain.

Back pain is one of the most common medical conditions in the United States and it’s estimated that eight out of ten adults will have back pain at some point in their lives. One of the more common causes of back pain is a bulging or herniated disc. When the disc irritates the lower spinal nerve roots that form the sciatic nerve, pain radiating down the leg can be felt – a condition known as sciatica.

Medical doctors today are quick to recommend an epidural steroid injection for back pain and sciatica but some new research suggests that this may not be the best approach Lgd 4033 for sale.
