i am, sorry you are having trouble. i would like a bit of info on your pain and activity level.
as for spinal decompression it has been found to help a majority of the people who use it. a key llement here is that you only have disc trouble and not arthritic changes in your spine.
so if you fit the profile of a person who would benefit it might be worth a try. it is however necessary to get an mri to rule out other problems......pete
I am a 25 year old male that has just been diagnosed with a spinal fracture in my lower back. It seems to have been cause by a car accident or fall from over two years ago but it did not heal properly and thus when twisting and picking up a kids toy about a month ago I managed to reopen the fracture. I have very sever lower back pain with weakness, numbness and such in my right leg. The pain also shoot down my right leg to about the knee cap area. It was diagnosed via an x-ray in the emergency room and then confirmed via another x-ray done by a specialist. Thus far the treatment has been pain medication and rest, not lifting more than a gallon of milk. Basically the typical back injury treatment. I go back to the doctor later today to review a bone scan that I just had done and to adjust my medication as the Hydrocodone 5-500 do not seem to be helping as much as they should. I am still in a massive amount of pain and cannot perform any normal activities. Going to the bathroom is a challenge and I am having bowl control issues as well. I hope this helps you and I hope that you get better soon. Best wishes to you and your family.
