Hello I am new and dont know where to post this.
I was told by my GP that I have DDD and an annular tear that showed on a recent MRI. As well as "Early bilateral facet arthritis."
The only thing he said was to go for physical therapy, and that the tear could rupture the disc.
And I would like to hear from anyone that has experience with an annular tear. Does physical therapy help this or can it make it worse? What do you do for the pain? I am unable to take pain medications.
I had to postpone physical therapy due to another health crisis and still have not been well enough. What do I do?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
