My spine is the baseline

I know several of my friends are going in for MRIs in the near future (or already had them). I just got back from my MRI follow-up with my orthopedic doctor. No spinal stenosis. I have arthritis of the facet joints in my lumbar area that is causing swelling that pinches my nerves. He gave me a referral for an injection at the pain clinic next door to his office. Hoping that will counteract the pain in the back I get whenever I stand or walk for more than 15 minutes. I have some very important "walking tours" during my vacation this summer.

I am told this shot will not be steroids.
