Is there anyone here on AM that is suffering from bulging disc's? or had bulging disc's in the past? If so how have you managed to fix the problem.
Also looking for feedback on anyone that has had back issues, that has tried Cold Laser Therapy and(or) Chiropractic sessions.
I had an MRI done last year, results showed 1 bulging disc. Last week I got a cat scan and now I have 2 bulging disc's and my sacrum looks to be shifted a little near the nerv. So obviously me going light on training isn't light enough or I'm rehabing my lowerback wrong. I guess my issue is that I don't like to take things slow, did very little therapy before starting to do back extensions and hypers, to squats, back to boxing and now it has just got worse. I am now only doing light therapy exercises every second day, with stretching and core work.
I'm going to the doctors tomorrow to get a referral to see another surgeon, the one I saw didn't want to listen to a thing I said, I was in and out of the place in 4 min, I asked if there is anything I can do, he told me "no, your going to have to deal with this for the rest of your life, stuff like this will never get better, later on it will start hitting the nerv, once this happends I will do surgery" Than he left and thats it. Maybe a second opinion will be better...
Also tomorrow I'm going to see a really good physiotherapist and get his thoughts on everything. I have one guy that goes to my gym that is a chiropractor's assistant, tells me 5 weeks of adjustments and cold laser therapy, along with lower back therapy and I'll be feeling 100% again..... now this is $1200 for 5 weeks, pretty pricey, but well worth it if my back can heal up. Just not sure if I'm going to go through with that yet, I want to get as much info and everyone's thoughts on this before I jump the gun. I have looked up feedback online, but it seems to be on all these laser therapy sites, which make me question how legit it is, doing some more searching now, but figured I'll see if I can get some feedback on here too. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
