I was involved in an accident nearly 50 years ago that damaged my lower back and neck and created chronic pain. I consulted a highly regarded neuro surgeon and he said the damage was too extensive for traditional surgery to be effective. He recommended that I use whatever means were available to help relieve the pain such as massage, chiropractic and acupuncture therapies. I also had laser disc surgery in both my low back and neck that trimmed bulging and torn discs. All of the procedures and therapies helped but there was still some pain that would not go away due to tendon and ligament damage. Within a few hours of having my first prolozone injections that pain was gone. I had first injections 3 months ago and I am still pain free.
