Steroid shots fall short in long-term relief for low-back pain - Chicago Tribune

Steroid shots have fallen very short in long term relief for low back pain. Chronic lower back pain is something that impacts many people in the world. Some people try to take steroids, but this is only a short term effect. Something that you inject can only help the pain for a month. It does not give you a long term solution.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chronic lower back pain affects millions of Americans. Many try steroid injections to ease their discomfort, but researchers now say this remedy provides only short-term relief.
  • "Our results do not support the wide use of an injection of glucocorticoid in alleviating symptoms in the long term in this condition," said lead researcher Dr. Christelle Nguyen.
  • Patients with a sudden episode of back pain — so-called acute pain — probably don't need a steroid injection
