Here is another statement that you here often. People who are dealing with spinal problems many times want a procedure to make them better. It could surgery, it could be an injection and it could be just stronger pain medications.
Dealing with some spinal problems is not that black and white.
An example, if you have a toothache because of a cavity, you go to the dentist, they drill and fix the cavity and you are set, no more problems. Thats an example of FIX ME
Spinal problems can be much more complicated. For many there isnt a simple solution to fixing them. It takes a combination of what the doctor(s) recommend and what the patient needs to do. Both parties have responsibilities here. The doctors have to make the recommendations and the patient needs to do what is recommended. And if that doesnt fix the problem, more discussions and plans need to be established.
Never give up, never allow a doctor to give up on you.
