epidural analgesia, the injection you're talking about, is only a temporary measure & during the effect period if patient do not take care of his/her back properly, when effect vanishes , patient feel pain more than previous. So i'll suggest not to go for it.
Get an MRI of LS spine done & mail the report to me at to suggest you proper line oftreatment

hi my dear frd,

this type of injection therapy named EPIDURAL ANALGEIA

IT will work very fine but before this other associate problem should be subside then you should opt this option and remember your mother should go under regular exercise regime through OUT the life to maintain the effect of EPIDURAL
