Staal had a cortisone shot in his neck because the MRI showed something was putting pressure on his nerves. Cortisone shots are given when someone has a issue with a disk in the neck. Headaches are one of the symptoms from a slipped disk. Sather said Staal might have a "slipped disk" on September 26. Staal had the MRI and cortisone shot that day.
This is 100% true. My mother has been going through something similar from a car accident with 3 herniated disks and 2 bulging disks in her neck. She deals with Migraines EVERYDAY. Injections help, but only for a little while. Hope he gets better very soon.
