Hello, I hope i am posting this in the right forum.. I have some issues in my LUMBAR and cervial..2 years ago after a car accident i wa diagnoised with 3 herniated disc and stenosis in my neck.. I tried PT and for me if was a JOKE! Massage therpy felt great!! But everything else was a nightmare especially when a chiro tried to crack my neck..
Anyhow I since i am lucky enough to wake up one morning with BACK issues i need to figure out what i am going to do... What my RECENT MRI states is:
L3-L4 and L4-L5 - A broad-based disc herniation is seen. There is also bilateral facet and ligamentous hypertrophy. There is moderate bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing and mild central canal stenosis.
L5-S1 - A central herniation slightly indents the ventral aspect of the thecal sac causing central canal stenosis
What i am trying to ask has anyone used DECOMPARESSING TABLES , strething, & CORE TRAINING TO HELP???? has it WORKED?? I try stretching and it feels worse!!
As of NOW i guess I am super luck-- Lets me say this one more time " I AM VERY LUCKY" the pain is just a anoying type pain in my BUTT and lower back.. THis pain came out of NO WHERE about 2months ago and has stayed the same.. I HAVE THIS BAD FEELING before the year is over i will get a rude awakening...
