Hello everyone, I will try and make this quick and simple. It all started 4 years ago when I was deadlifting in the gym when I hurt my lower back, resulting in a small disc Herniation. Was always sick and tired of seeing people not heal and doing countless sessions in physio with no results. I've heard good things about PRP in the lower back having the power to regenerate discs and to hopefully put an end to this chronic pain. I currently have sciatica which happened about 4 months after the initial injury, which has been with me everyday, and seems to be aggravated most by standing. Anyways, I had my MRI down and lots of conservative treatments but it always failed. I finally found a Neurosurgeon who did PRP under fluoroscope for damaged discs... it was expensive but I knew this was my best choice before going under the knife. I had 2 injections around my inflamed nerve at L5 and one above the nerve as well. I didn't want to do intradiscal due to hearing stories about it causing more of a disc degeneration in the future, and its not best to stick a needle into the disc which could create more problems down the line, so I did it just outside the disc. I am 1 day post injection at the moment and I will let you guys know how it goes There hasn't been much discussion on PRP and the low back so I Thought I would be one of the few to actually get it done and post about it. i'll keep you updated!
