Does the methylprednisolone dosepak take away the pain of a herniated disk?

Prednisone for pain. Prednisone is a temporary solution to help with an acute flare of your back pain. Some people who have herniated disk do not have pain and others have it chronically. When there is a flare or a worsening of pain, this can help but will not permanently make the pain go away.
Maybe. Steroids, when given orally, by iv, intrathecal or transforaminal are provided for the purpose of decreasing the inflammation around the nerve root. Through this mechanism reduction in pain intensity occurs.
