Back & shoulder pain
Mom was diagnosed for Spondylitis recently. She has been taking homeopathy medicines but it's not effective. Because few alopathy doctors suggested tat a Steroid injection can suppress the pain. We ain't interested in taking steroid injections. Kindly suggest safe way to deal with pain. Pain killers don seem to br effective too :( On seeing her MRI results doctors suggested that this condition can be cured by medication and Physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is not helping too.
