Does anyone have any information or experience with INR?

While researching pain treatments for severe head, neck and shoulder pain, I found the website for INR (Institute of Neurological Recovery).

If you have any information on INR, would you please share it?

Thank you!

Re: Does anyone have any information or experience with INR?

Welcome to the board. I love this board. Some days I learn about something that I would not know about otherwise.

I had never heard of INR but after seeing your post, I did some quick research. The treatment sounds very intriguing and I want to read more about it. It is particularly interesting to learn that this drug is being used to treat Alzheimer's and stroke patients.

If you live in the area, I think it would certainly be worthwhile to investigate further.

Have you seen a spine specialist for a proper diagnosis so you really know what is causing your pain? If so, then it seems reasonable to look into this.

Please come back and let us know if you try the injections.

"Have you seen a spine specialist for a proper diagnosis so you really know what is causing your pain?"

Thank you for your post.

Yes, my condition has been fully investigated. I have chronic pain as a result of a serious car accident (age 15) and boating accident (age 46).

INR is located in Florida and I'm in Canada. I want to fully research INR before considering a consultation.

[B]If anyone has any information about INR and their services, please share.

Greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Does anyone have any information or experience with INR?

From what I could tell from the website and reading the studies on the NIH website, there is nothing magical about what they are doing...instead of injecting with a steroid, they are using Embrel, which is given to rheumatoid arthritis patients in an effort to stop joint damage and to ease pain so the patient can keep moving.

I don't understand what the changes are in the body that allow it to work for rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's, stroke and sciatica. Sounds fascinating to me.

I would check around. There must be someone in Canada who is doing the same thing.

I'll be surprised if there is someone on the board who has had this treatment. It almost sounds too good to be true, a thought that was reinforced in my mind by the fact that the doctor is located in Florida (where most of our too good to be true medical practioners seem to be located....)
