Discussions that mention arthrotec

Back Problems board

Hi! I'm 46/female just diagnosed with osteoarthritis in lower back and neck. Physiotherapy has helped my neck tremendously. Not so lucky with back. I'm taking Arthrotec which is helping a lot with my back, especially being able to sleep at night. However, I don't want to take meds for the rest of my life! I'm too young for this.........at least I thought. Anyway, my physiotherapist suggested joint injections for my back. I'm going to talk to my doc about this. Has anyone had it? Any success stories? Any information at all would be greatly appreciated!
