It will relieve it for a week or so. That is as long it helped me. Be careful because they say it is not good to keep getting the shots.Maybe she could get therapy to help her with the symptoms if she can't afford the surgery.

Depends really. Sometimes the relief is permanent but more often than not, it recurs. Only surgery offers permanent relief if done correctly.
