A panel convened by the FDA to examine the safety of steroid injections to treat back pain has decided not to issue a warningabout this treatment. Few people who get these shots may be aware that the FDA has never approved them for use in treating back pain. This despite the fact that the treatment has been around for more than six decades. The panel did not address the efficacy of steroid injections. This remains in dispute. But, for now, at least, the FDA has concluded that these injections are safe. The panel did find one exception for steroid injections in the cervical spine.
About the Author
Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
