I'm looking for threads about my particular problem. I am trying to avoid surgery. I am interested in specific types of physical therapy and self-care advice.
Spondo is a grade 2 slippage , the bones have fused on their own(according to neurosurgeon), I have pain and stiffness and many limitations.
I've had this for over a decade but recently much worse.
Thank you!
