Manhattan Chiropractor Answers: Should I Get Cortisone Injections?

Here is some helpful insight from your local Manhattan Chiropractor. Cortisone injections are intense pain killers that numb back pain for one to three months. While the body is numb we continue to do motions that exacerbate our condition. Cortisone injections also deplete cartilage in the spine causing disks to become thinner and nerves to become compromised and possibly irritated. One injection is rarely the solution. Pain usually comes back worse and after three injections the only option left is surgery. Come see Dr. Wagner, your Chiropractor in Manhattan NY, for more information.
