I dont understand injections for herniated disc..please help

doyourtime89ddoyourtime89 Posts: 16
I finallyhad my MRI it shows a herniated disc L5-S1 what I don't understand is what the injections could do long term. I understand they could help with the pain and inflammation, but if you have a herniated disc meaning the interior of the disc has came out of the disc. I don't understand what the injection will do because it will not remove the disc material that has been forced out of your disk. The only way I see that material being removed is with surgery. So I don't understand what the injections can do for you long term/permanent, any help would be appreciated thank you.
