I have had several treatments for my lumbar and cervical pains; some have been steroidal injections and lately I’ve been having RF Lesioning. Unfortunately the effectiveness of each treatment lasts one to three months. I have yet to receive a treatment that would give me freedom from continuous lumbar and neck pain for for a year or longer.
