A shot in the spine to help with knee pain?
Q:Have you had one or do you know anything about it?
More Answers to “A shot in the spine to help with knee pain?“Depends on why you have knee pain. I have a bulging disk which causes my knee pain. I got a sterioid shot in the spine and I feel much better. Our Central Nervous System (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) is responsible for controlling every function of our bodies. Signals go from our brain, down through our spinal cord, and out via nerves that exit between the vertebrae (spinal bones). You get a shot for knee pain in your spine because the nerve in your knee actually originates in the lower spine. The shot interferes with the nerve impulses, thus stopping the pain signal to your brain so you don’t feel it.The shot doesn’t “fix” whatever is causing the pain, it only stops the pain signal from reaching the brain.

I’ve had it done for pain in my thigh. it works I promise. Weird procedure. like an epidural when in labor, but it does the trick. Pain was minimal, had to take it easy that day, but after that no special restrictions. In 48 hours the pain in my thigh was much less. Just had it done for the second time a couple of days ago. A third is supposed to be all I’ll need. So far I’m very pleased with the results. Just grab the needle and stick it in the Physicians ear
