There are no medical professionals on this forum side of the site. Therefore, no one is capable or permitted to provide any type of medical advice.
This includes any analysis, interpretation, or advice based on any diagnostic test

Easier Reading

How the initial thread is put together can make all the difference in what type of responses you will get.


To Avoid

  • - Lengthy posts. When any post starts to almost full up a page, many readers will just pass that by
    - No spacing. posts without spacing between paragraphs is very difficult to read
    - The Titles HELP, I need Help , HELP ASAP. The title should be something about your condition
    - What does my MRI Mean. It is a forum violation to ask or give medical advice
    - Stating that you have pain in xxxx, then say what is that
    - Specific doctor names . Again, it is a forum violation to use any specific doctor name
    - Abbreviated, or should I say Phone message shortcuts. Spell it out!

What you should do

  • - Provide as much detail as you can about your situation
    - Be patient. You made your post and you dont see anyone responding. Give it time.
    - Read the Forum Rules and FAQ. This will go a long way and help you
    - Read our Welcome to Spine-Health message , it has pointers to almost everything on this site
And whenever you are not sure about something, then send a message to one of the moderators. Just remember, all the moderators are volunteers, to their time is not dedicated to the forums.
