That’s the diagnosis I just received from my chiropractor. I had an MRI done Thursday and the radiologist found :
-a disc herniation at L5 S1 with stenosis
-a disc protrusion at L4-L5, with no “material” pushed out
My chiro says regular chiro won’t solve the problem but he has a DTS table (a table that basically pulls you apart) and says that will help. He’d like me to continue with that.
He says PT might help or hurt, depending on who the PTs are and what exercises they have me do
I need to strengthen my core
I need to lose weight
I’ve already started reading posts and articles on this site relating to back problems, core strengthening, etc.
I plan on reading any Louie SImmons’ articles I can find. I will also start doing research online.
Meanwhile, for those of you with herniated discs or stenosis, pls tell me what you’re doing that helps (or doesn’t help).
And any healers on the board, such as Dr. Ryan, chime in with their thoughts, opinions, etc.
Especially concerning exercises and specific treatments.
