In brief: Pain relief

can be variable but starts improving after 3-4 days and can take up to 10-14 days to provide the most relief.
Sometimes you need a second injection to get improved long lasting relief from the pain you suffer.

In brief: Pain relief

Typically patient report about 50% reduction in pain 1-2 weeks after the procedure.
Often a second procedure is performed 2 weeks after the first in hopes of further reducing pain and prolonging the effect. The effects of the procedure are temporary; the duration of effect is highly individualized.
