    What should I do? Am I at risk of getting any More hernaited discs if things don't change? And, Do herniated discs cause any other type of problems?

    I was in a accident back at the start of 2008, its been 3 yrs and I am still in a serious amount of pain. It seems like the more time passes the worse the pain gets, I have a herniated disc on my back at L5-S1 & another at C4-C5 in the back of my neck. I've done the injections and they did nothing, ended up making my pain even worse, therapy helps but only for a VERY short amount of time. Been to several doctors but all I was told that it was nothing for me to be concern about. The pain is excruciating to the point where I am unable to walk, sit and even hurts to laugh and cough. I am also unable to turn my head to even try to look over my shoulder, I've taken all types and kinds of medications and they are NOT working. READ MORE

    I had two herniated discs from a work accident. My pain was excruciating and not getting better until I:

    1. Started using a Zero Gravity Chair

    2. Saw a special physical therapist who was a AAOMPT fellow

    3. Changed my diet to an Anti-Inflammatory Diet

    4. Accepted my responsibility to care for my injury no matter how it happened. No blame or anger allowed.

     

    That what worked for me, I am not sure it will work for you but it is worth sharing just in case.
