Question; My spine specialist advised my disk was separated and would heal over time, alot of time, and stated the disk had plenty of thickness and he wouldn't think of surgery. He did mention I now had DDD but wasn't too concerned and said I would eventually be able to resume normal activities within reason.
Has anyone had a separated disk? or is this actually a torn disk?
I am currently feeling stronger and am back to work full time with little pain. I have had alot of stiffness in my upper back and think it's due to not being able to twist or work out the upper back. I'm nervous and unsure if the disk will really heal as I hear it's very hard to heal, especially if it's torn.
