i recently moved to another state,have new health insurance ect.. went to a pain clinic was given med's, helped somewhat, my next appt was for shots. was taken in by the dr had a floroscopic x-ray,of my cervical spine. after he seen what was there, he told me i had alot of soft tissue damage,and don't let anyone else drive needles into your neck.previous pain managment dr was giving me facet injections and trigger points... it, helped .. just scared me beacause it seemed like he did not want to try to help with my pain or maybe he was afraid?


  • Good to hear you found a new PM Dr. Maybe he wants the soft tissue to heal before you get more injections? I guess you could ask how long it takes for it to get better or get a 2nd opinion to see what they say. Are you using a massage machine or TENS to help in the meantime? Take care and hope the soft tissue swelling gets better soon. Charry
