Does Anyone Else Here Have Arthritis In Their Back And Knees? If So, What Treatments Have Worked For You?

A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have arthritis in my back that has been treated with injections. I've even had the nerve endings in the L3-L5 region in my back burned and had a cortisol shot in my s1 region. The swelling is gone, but not the pain. My knees have been left untreated. The pain gets unbearable at times, but my doctor only says lose weight.
