Spinal injections are now usually done with x-ray to verify the needle position and because of the greater complexity of some injections compared to standard lumbar epidural injections you had. Doctors think that the chance of getting the medicine in the correct location is better using x-ray, even though they were done without x-ray for years. Unfortunately no spinal injection, or spinal surgery for that matter, work all the time for everyone. Good luck! ...Read more
