My name is Jennifer. I have been a nurse for 2 years and love my job. Recently ive had back pain to the point where i cant move properly. I had to insist on an MRI because my doctor kept saying it was muscular which in the end it wasnt. I finally got an MRI and the conclusion was as follows.
Conlusion: Minor non compressive disc bulge at L5-S1 level. Mild bilateral L5-S1 and L4-5 facet osteoarthropathy.
My doctor pretty much told me to quit the job i love because he said if i kept practicing i would be pretty much crippled in 5 years. Is this right to say? Do you believe there is a treatment option out the (Preferably non-surgical) that could fix/help the problem so i can continue my career?
Thank you so much for any advice.
