After 3 shots for the herniated discs I was left with pain in my right leg from my knee down to my foot with period of needle-like pain all over my foot. Wearing the DDS brace each morning (1/2 hr while walking plus 1 hour just moving around normally) would relieve the pain for approx. 10 to 14 hours—usually till bed time. Awakening in the morning the pain would resume and I would repeat the use of the brace. After some physical therapy and daily wearing of the brace for approximately 2.5 to 3 months, I woke up one morning and the pain was gone. Up to now 6 months has passed and the pain has not returned. I am now playing golf and tennis again.
