I had an MRI done on Monday for horrible back pain I've been in for 3 weeks. My chiropractor called me and I have 2 herniated discs and degenerative disc disease in another. The herniation between L5 and S1 is "significant" with almost complete nerve impingement. My chiro is sending me to a Orthopedic surgeon. Thankfully, my Ortho Doctor is a team doctor for one of the local NFL teams, so he must be a good Doctor if he's trusted with the health of multi-million dollar football players.
