I am new to Spine Health but not to on line forums. My doctor recommended I take a look at this one…and then Hagland “C” suggested I introduce myself, so, here I am.
My quick history: I’ve had sciatic type pain off and on for years…too long ago to remember when it started. I spent a great part of my youth training to become a top tier athlete in figure skating. I think all the falls on my tail bone probably contributed to my current issues. My problems just came on slowly, through the years...no accident or injury as some of you have had.
I primarily have lower lumbar issues, hyper mobile joints and spondylolisthesis. I had a one level fusion a couple years ago, followed by a lami/foraminotomy and, later, another fusion. I’ve gone through a variety of specialists and have tried every type of conservative treatment, including a variety of ESIs, caudal injections and nerve blocks, and dabble with a variety of alternate medical treatments.
I look forward to getting acquainted with everyone.
