have been reading story's and decided to join the forum.
I had a moderate herniated disk in 1996 and numerous repeat herniations since and was recently injured at work resulting in a reinjury of the herniated disk and neck surgery for a fractured disk. While recuperating at home from the neck surgery, I tore the previously injured herniated disk and was out of work for four months due to my spine having become crooked from the pain and swelling. The disk released a chemical irritant onto my lower disk nerves which pushed the spine away from it's normal position, Called Temporary Painful Scoliosis.
Has anyone out there ever been through this process?
