Another disc herniation!!!



  • MAxi, I really wouldn't recommend you jump into surgery unless you have tried other options first. For example if you are re- hernieating then is it somehting that you do that causes it to re-hernieste. Have you been taught to use your core stability muscles by a physiotherapist and do you do regular exercises to support your back? Have your tried any other treatments such as injections, chiro, aqua therapy or anything else.
    Now I have nothing against fusions as I am so happy I had mine done but it is a last resort and not a quick fix. There is nothing quick about the recovery.
    Discs that have hernieated/bulged/extruded are often able to reobsorb with the right treatment and time. If it doesn't, then you can still go the fusion route.
