    Ok, then how does that doctor recommend you to deal with it! I hate when I hear any one from the medical field or elsewhere say that because you are young , you shouldn't be having those problems. Spinal problems have never discriminated in terms of age. When there is a problem, there is a problem, if you are 13 or 83.

    Doctors need to put the appropriate action plans into place. Now that could vary from case to case. For some, it may mean a lot of physical therapy, for some, pain medications, for others, no medication, just exercise.

    But lets try to forget the age when it comes to the problem. How you can get your doctor to do that? I do not know. But I have heard this way too often and my response has always been, Then perhaps its time to seek a second opinion and/or doctor
