Suggest treatment for pain caused by herniated disc
Question: I was wanting to know about getting pain medicine without a prescription. I have a herniated disc in my back and I am trying to find a local back doctor to help me. The pain is so bad.
Brief Answer: Pain meds always need a prescription Detailed Answer: Hi there, Thanks for coming to HealthCareMagic. Unfortunately pain meds always require a prescription. There are other ways of getting relief from pain though. Physical therapy. Localized injections of steroids into the spine can be very effective. An implanted pain pump will also help in the long term. I hope this helps. Vinay
