Hello everyone! My name is Tim and I'm new to the site. I hope to find some info here relating to my on going condition. I'm a 22 year old extremely healthy male that suffers from a herniated L5-S1 with an annular tear. The disc is impinging the s1 nerve and causes pain down threw my left leg and into my left foot. This has been going on for 17 months. I have taken neurmous meds, done physical therapy, had three injections, and tried aqua therapy + traction. All of this has done very little to help me. I made an appt with a surgeon and he does not want to operate because of my age...
The worst part is this is a workers comp case. So somethings I can not do like chiropracting.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope to get some good feedback.
