I am a 27 year old male. I went to Chioprater 3 months ago to try to fix some numbness in feet. Months went by I keep reinjurying myself. And its now at the point where i can't even walk around with out hurting myself. I have been laying in bed for weeks. I try to get up every hour walk around for as long as i can. But it then sends me into servere muscle spasms. I then lay in bed for days. Untill i gain Strength to start getting up and try walking again. I have had mri down within last month. No findings of any slipped disks. I am aware i have a strained back due to chiropractor visit. But I belive to also have a slipped disk. Its painful in my lower back spine. Thats where i have muscle spasms. I have spine doc visit coming up. Are there such things as Lower Back rehabs? I am not getting better, I am lost and in pain. I want to ask for Massage therpy. And to start going to pool. To strengthen my muscles. My back is really really bad. All i want is to get on with my life. But all i do is lay in bed all day. I am aware of the problems with this. I just can't get out of bed because when i do I hurt myself. Please any help would be thankful. Do i need rehab? I called physical therapy and they told me if I can't even come in to do streachs or even walk then they don't recommend me starting. I went outside yesterday 1st time in a week. I had been getting up every hour and walking for atleast 5 to 10 mins for the last few days. So when i was outside i sat in chair. Got up, walked around for 5 mins, sat back down. I would say for 4 hours i did this. I woke up this morn. And whole body is sore. No muscle spasms though. Should i keep moving? Lay in bed to rest today? So frustrated. Also i feel i have a herinated disk. But mri showed nothing. I have read many forums about this. What to do? I have had a slipped disk before. I had servere pain running down legs. I worked a whole year to fix it. Pain went away. I am so scared i am gonna push it to the point where i get that pain yet again. All i have now is weakness in legs and numbness in feet. So! My main questions are! Are there rehabs? If mri did not show slipped disk then why all this pain running down lower part of spine/muscles? I know I am dealing with atrophy. How to overcome this? Thank You for reading. Hope to hear some feedback for my soul.
