If this is your first online forum that you registered for it can be a bit akward navigating around. Even if you are experienced at online forums, this site is more unique in the fact that so many of the members deal with chronic pain and others are newer to the various set of spinal problems.
Many times I see the same question being asked again by a new member. The members here always try to understand that and provide answers.
I have also told newer members that instead of just jumping in to make a post, read for a while, get to understand how the site is configured and the flow of posts.
I also STRONGLY suggest that every new member becomes familiar with the Spine-Health Main Menus.
There is a wealth of information there. I have referenced those pages countless times about the same subject.
Please, take some time to look through the main menu. I have found that the Conditions, Treatment and Videos are the most informative.
