    ...and then some days life gets completely bonkers here, and I don't
    have a chance to update web pages at filegate.net ... this week was one
    of "those" weeks. Ron found out via an MRI and other testing that he's got arthritis in his spine. It's started causing incredible pain.. so much so that he can't even sit at the dinner table for more than about
    10 minutes.. he'll probably have to have surgery or an injection of steroids in his spine to get some relief..

    Oh, dear.... Another option might be to get pressure point injections
    beside the spine... I was caring a few years ago for someone that
    already had been getting too many steroid injections in her knees, hips
    and shoulders for the doc to want to give any into her spine, and was
    not at all a good candidate for surgery.... She found relief from the
    pressure point injections... the doctor she went to for that (here in
    the Rochester area) was Cecilia Ransom... she was part of the Unity Rehabilitation and Neurology group, and we saw her at the office at 2655 Ridgeway Ave, Suite 420... I don't know if she has any other locations
    or not, but it might be worth checking out...

    In any case, I hope that Ron can find SOME relief....!

    What is meant by pressure point injections? I have gotten steroid
    injections, guided to the spot by xray. That doctor told me that at my
    age, there was not really any limit to how many I could have -- but that
    for younger people (55 or so?) they would limit the number and/or
    frequency of injections.

    I can say that they gave me very good temporary relief -- two to three
    months, but eventually the back pain in lower back returned, albeit
    never so bad that it was not manageable.

    What is meant by pressure point injections?

    Actually, they are also refered to as dry needle 'injections'... (it
    comes back to me as I type about it)... very much related to
    acupuncture, but using the sort of needles that are usually used for injections....

    I have gotten steroid injections, guided to the spot by xray. That
    doctor told me that at my age, there was not really any limit to how
    many I could have -- but that for younger people (55 or so?) they
    would limit the number and/or frequency of injections.

    MJ was in her later 50's at the time, but had been getting the steroids
    for quite a few years already in the joints... we were going in every 6
    weeks or so, and getting at least two injections each visit (left knee
    and right shoulder, right hip and left shoulder, etc... whichever was
    the worst at the time, but trying to rotate it between the 6 sites...)
    But that really was too much steroids to be getting, and they did look
    for some alternatives for those shots, too... Voltaren cream for the
    shoulders and hips, and some other sort of injection for the knees....

    I can say that they gave me very good temporary relief -- two to three months, but eventually the back pain in lower back returned, albeit
    never so bad that it was not manageable.

    They'd work well for MJ, too, often faster than average, but always
    would wear off eventually.... My mom was getting the steroid shots in
    her hands for arthritis... they worked well for her, and she'd go more
    like 6 months often without needing an update....

    Dale,

    What is meant by pressure point injections? I have gotten steroid

    Not sure about pressure point injections...unless it means where you
    hold your fingers to stop bleeding. As for the steroid shots, those
    "jack me up" to where I can't sleep at night.
