I have had increasing pain past 3 years L4/L5. Tests show annular tear with Mild degenerative disc disease. I have gone through Facet Joint injections, epidurals, PT, Acupuncture, Chiro, etc. with no help. Question is has anyone simply gotten better without back surgery (meaning I have gone 3 years and still bad should I still wait it out)? Thank you in advance for sharing anything that helps.
