i am a 22 year old police officer. I for some unfortunate reason have a bad back at this early age. I used to be a very active person; running 3-5 miles per day. but for the past 6 months I have had horrible static nerve pain at the L4, L5 level. In april I was chasing an offender and I jumped some rather high fences and this made the problem much worse. So about a month ago I had a microdiscectomy surgery (check spelling) and the the pain from the L4 and L5 is pretty much gone. however, I have starting going to a physical therapist and he seems very concerned with my MRIs. he was explaining to me that my disc are all in horrible shape because my lower spine is too straight and there is no curve to absorb the shock. so I was wondering if anyone knows of any other surgeries or manipulations that I can do to try to restore this curve to my spine. I am desperate to get this problem fixed being that I am so young and want to advance in my career but this spine problem obviously scares me. please any help at all will greatly be appreciated.
