This Guest Blog Post is from Julie Nam, one of Dr. T’s Health Psychology students:
Epidural injections are often used to relieve back pain. However, a recent study under the guidance of Dr. Kris Radcliff found no significant differences between spine patients who had injections and the control group. Injected patients actually had less improvement than the control group. Although the study is small and may have outside factors, the unexpected results brings our attention of “what a pain” it is to treat pain.
