Doctor: Joseph T. Sanelli, DO
In a brief description, what are the type of symptoms that brought you to Long Island Spine Specialists?
I came to Long Island Spine Specialists because I had problems in my back and severe pain down both of my legs. I tried physical therapy and it wasn’t doing anything. It was suggested that I try epidural steroid injections with Dr. Sanelli. Within a couple of hours [of the injection], I felt tremendous relief. A series of shots worked wonders for me.”
