I had a very bad disc in about 1985 and had Papaya Disc Injection on it and it took it about a year to completely heal up but it has been great ever since. No pain on that disc at all. IT's 2014 now.

    into Canada in the late 1970's John Davidson , the NY Ranger Goalie had some of these injections to heal his herinated discs. The injections must have helped him, since he returned to playing goalie with any problems.

    This was never considered in the USA. Right about my 3rd lumbar surgery, my surgeon wad discussing this as an option for me. For whatever reasons, it disappeared completely as a potential remedy for disc herniation.
