    Hello Angela

    My friend had injections both sides of the lower spine and although there was pain for a few days following the treatment he later notice some improvement. I have regular treatment from an acupuncturist for my lower spine, right knee and right wrist. The knee and wrist have improved (less pain & swelling) but the lower spine needs more than acupunture. I have to see a specialist in three weeks.

    I go to aquafit classes most days and using a floatation belt makes it possible to exercise. It's important to get some exercise but I can't walk far or use my bike. 

    At night I put a pillow between my knees which helps in finding a comfortable 

    sleeping position. Angela, try not to feel scared, I always say it's better to do something rather than nothing. Regards, Alpine

      Hi Alpine

      thanks for the reply,I have previously had injections in my lower spine and it was fine however the injection I am having is directly in to the coccyx,I am more scared as my consultant told me it would be painful! Now normally they wouldn't say anything,I am a little confused thou as he told me I would be asleep for a couple of minutes while he does the procedure so I don't understand how it can hurt if I am asleep! I know I should  have asked my consultant but I couldn't get out of there quick enough.

    Hi Angela

    I had the injections about 18 months, approximately 18 months after I fisrt started having coccyx pains and had ran out of options to try.

    I wasn't put under; they did put some local anesthetic on, but I did find it quite uncomfortable - but it wasn't that bad. It felt a bit sore and tender for a couple of days but after a week or two felt better than previously. 

    I'm not sure how effective it was for me though - there'd been a long waiting list, and meanwhile I'd been doing some exercises to strengthen other muscles in my back, I'd been using a coccyx cushion, and I'd been avoiding driving and long sitting. Immediately after the injections I hardly sat at all. I think it gradually heeled - a few months later it seemed better, if not amazingly so, and after 6 months (so 2 years after the injury) I stopped using the cushions and it hardly bothered me at all.

    A year on, it can still flare if I'm driving a car for more than an hour, or sit 'badly' on a poor chair, or a long haul flight, but otherwise I don't notice it.

    So I don't know how much the injections contribued, or whether it was a time factor and improving my other back muscles... but if your pain is really bad, I'd suggest giving it a go.

    Good luck!!
