I am interested is hearing from anyone who has a Spinal Kinetics M6-Cervical ADR. How long have you had the artificial disc, and how has it impacted your life? I am currently being considered as a candidate for the clinical trials here in US, but I know there are others who went to Europe, or may have participated in the earlier phases of the trial.

I am a 39yr old female with 6 kids. Seriously considering the M6 trial, but am filled with trepidation. Although, I really don't like any of my options, I have to do something. As I am sure many of you know, cervical myelopathy can be a beast to live with.

Being an avid believer in natural and holistic methods for healing the body, this is a serious step for me to be undertaking.

Thanks in advance for any information you all can offer!!
