My son (27 years old and in the military) has degenerative disc disease and herniated disc.He's been in pain for over a year. He has been through everything the orthopedic doctor has asked him to do...shots, Graston Technique etc and they told him they could not help him. I believe the only tests he's had is an x-ray and MRI. He's now has an appointment with a Neurosurgeon I have two questions.
1. If this was your first appointment what would you ask the doctor.
2. Do you believe seeing a Neurosurgeon will a better way to go and will they be able to access what is causing the pain.
I hope I have posted this in the correct place.
