Back Pain Injections Kill 5 People, Possible More Pending

All they had was back pain and now they are dead.  Over 50 other people have also been affected by shots intended to relieve back pain.  Unfortunately, they were instead infected with a deadly fungal meningitis. This is a terrible complication of cortisone steroid injections and it is considered rare. However, other more common side effects are listed here.

Bottom-line,  there are risks and side effects with inject-able pain medications and sometimes it can be fatal.  Please consider all your options in seeking relief from back pain and include in that list, a visit to a chiropractor.  Dr. Press
