Your doctor may give you an epidural steroid shot to reduce inflammation in your spine, relieve pain, or give your body time to heal. Here's what's going on. Your spine is made up of many parts, the bony vertebra stacked on top of one another, shock absorbing disks between the vertebra, ligaments and muscles connecting the bones, and of course the spinal cord with nerves branching out into the body.

Your nerves and brain are constantly communicating with each other. And when you feel pain, it's because the nerves are sending a pain signal to your brain. The pain can be acute, which occurs immediately after an injury and goes away within two months when treated properly. Or the pain can be chronic, which includes any type of pain that lasts six months or longer.

It’s an American tradition. In the New Year, we think about making a commitment to ourselves to make changes that would improve our lives.

While many people in chronic pain don’t believe there’s much they can do to reduce their pain other than taking pills, in fact there is plenty of scientific evidence that lifestyle changes can reduce or even eliminate pain. However, the sad fact is that only 8% of people who make New Year’s resolutions actually stick to them.

Tiger Woods underwent a microdiscectomy in 2014 to relieve the pain caused by a pinch nerve, which had caused problems for him for months.

According to Woods, he decided to get the procedure done “after attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress.”

In a young and healthy back, discs between the vertebra provide height and allow bending, flexion, and twisting. The discs are like shock absorbers between the bones of the spine and are designed to help the back stay flexible while resisting forces. As a normal process of aging, the rubbery discs begin to shrink and lose integrity.
