injection for scar tissue?
Has anyone had steroid injections for nerve pain due to scar tissue? I saw an orthopedic surgeon that said "no surgery, but possible injection to relieve inflammation of nerve." I just am wondering if this has helped anyone. My thought is... if the scar tissue that's causing the inflammation isn't removed, how is a steroid injection going to help? Maybe for a week or two, but that's not worth it to me. He also recommended P.T. for me, so I'm giving that a try. He says it's "just" scar tissue and that my discs look good. "Just" scar tissue doesn't exist in my honest opinion. Scarring hurts just as bad as a disc. Any thoughts/suggestions?
