My mother is suffering from this spine problem that causes her pain nearly every day.

She has been offered steroid injections but has a problem with needles. Has anyone had these injections. Do they work. Are they painful?

Not everyone has the same experience as me.

I think steroid injections are the best thing ever invented.

In 24 hours I can go from unable to walk / stand / sit to being fairly mobile.

They do not work for everyone, but they do for me.
