Excellent, and very true Stossel. I was bed ridden, needed help getting up, couldn't stand for more than 2 seconds and in constant pain. i asked my wife to take me to a pain clinic. The Doctor looked at my MRI and said he was going to treat the problem. He gave me my first of 3 shots and within a few days I was able to get around with a walker. He wouldn't tell me what the shot was, just that it would help. I later found out it was a steroid shot. I'm still getting them whenever needed. Yet, it's illegal for athletes. I'd still be confined to bed without these shots.. .
