Treatments Description

Steroid shots r helpful for certain areas ie the back. I have tried MANY difrent muscle relaxers (hated them all for one reason or another). I currently take vicodin and tramadol for the pain but it never completely takes the pain away...tramadol takes the edge off the pain the best. Also keeping the lbs down helps with knee pain wich can b considerable
