Hello everyone I am new to this forum I was introduced to it by a friend of mine. Here is my situation, I was rear ended last year and have been having neck, shoulder, arm pains and finger tingling. I have seen 3 neurosurgeons and an othropedic surgeon within the past year. All of which have said that I have a severe herniation between my c4c5 disc and bone spur formation which will require surgery. I have gone throught 3 epidural shots, PT and massage therapy not have helped. I spoke to 3 chiropractors and 2 out of the 3 said they wont touch me because they dont want to furthur risk injury. The 3rd said he would try using the traction to decompress the disc and try to suck the herniation back into the disc using a vaccum like pressure from the traction machine. I really didnot follow what he was talking about. When I asked him about the bone spurs and how he would help with that issue, he said when he gets the fluids back in the disc the bone spurs will go away like a bad callus. I am in limbo right now and nervous about the surgery. My surgeon also said that future adjacent surgeries maybe required. Has anyone gone through with a single level ACDF and had to go in for others?
