    Hey legend, Not realy sure if any of the hormone thearapy is used in the USA unless maybe clinical trial and such,
    I think most go outside the states who get this treatment I believe,

    It would be nice if this would resolve DDD and other spine issues and used all over the world if it realy works,

    Good luck,

  • I live in Charleston, South Carolina, and there is a doctor here who uses HGH injections. He has done prolotherapy for about 15 years and has had more success with the HGH. It is pretty expensive and insurance companies do NOT cover it. I had a series of injections in my thoracic region in June, and it seems to have really helped that region so far. However, I have since had increased issues in the lumbar region. My chiro said that some times with the HGH another weak region can feel worse. I am going to actually get the lumbar treated in two weeks, and I just signed up to this forum, so I could hear from other pople who've used it. There is little scientific evidence, but my doctor has had a lot of anecdotal success stories.
