I was diagnosed on MOv 12, 2016 via MRI as having a herniated disk. Tried anti-inflams and muscle relaxers first. No improvement. Then 5 physiotherapy sessions, still no improvement. Then a cortizone injection and 5 more physio sessions. Things are improving but fairly slowly as of mid January 2016. Pain in the arm is gone but tightness/crampiness still there in the neck. Tingling less frequent. I can carry out a normal day so I'm lucky I know based on some other stories I have read here.
The PT exercises really seem to be doing the trick.
Anybody have similiar experiences/results? Does pain associated with a herniated disk ever leave for good? Thanks for your advice.
