  • Welcome to Spine-Health. Wow, getting hit by an 18-wheeler - that sounds so scary. Ack.

    Please give us more info - when was your surgery? What kind of surgeon did you use? What kind of pain are you having? Are you wearing a brace?

    The more information you give us, the more we'll be able to help.

    Look forward to learning more about your situation.
    Take care.
