Unfortunately if you are reading this you too are probably frustrated. Last july i injured my back from simply pulling out a grass weed. As a result i had severe back pain and herniated disk that caused tremendous sciatica pain. After a continuous increasing regime of pain pills I decided to get surgery to clean up the herniated disk in November. 90 percent of my sciatica was relieved so I stopped taking pain pills in January of this year. However I still have lower back pain and weakness. Despite going to physical therapy I’ve thrown out my back in February and a few days ago doing minor stuff. My frustration is that my doctors are not addressing as to why my back keeps going out. Physical therapy is supposed to help me build my core and lower back muscles. However when I first got injured last July i was fit and strong and that didn’t keep my back from going out. So without addressing as to exactly why it continues to go out im afraid nothing will change. I’ve pleaded with my doctors to explain why my spine continues to go out and what can be done. They offer no solutions other then pain management. This can’t be the only solution.
