Hello to you all. Just wanted to let everyone know that workmans comp approved my Hardware Block Injections. I'll be getting them done later on this afternoon.

So far I have had numerous L4-5 Facet Blocks & L4-5 Transforaminal ESI with no relief before surgery. Guess I'm kinda wondering with the hardware block should I feel relief right away? I know they can't inject strait into the screw heads. Will they try for the bone or focus on the area around the hardware?

If anyone has had this done I'd love to hear about it. Any input would be appreciated.


  • I don't have hardware but have had nerve blocks in the tissues around spine and hip. Hope it works and decreases your pain. Charry
