Re: L4/L5 Spine problems

You can find tons of info over on the Back Pain board.

I've had both the Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) and also a RFA (Radio frequency ablation). The ESI was for neck and back issues, the RFA for my SI joint (sacroiliac). The RFA did a great job of relieving my pain in that area. It comes back sometimes but not often enough to need to do RFA again.
