Back Pain
« on: March 21, 2011, 10:26:08 PM »
Hi My name is Natalie and I have been suffering from back pain for the past 6 years. Ive had 2 lumbar microdiscetomys and a spinal stimulator inserted. I recently had an updated CT scan which showed I had a prosterior disc bludy at L4/5 and S1. The dr said I should just put up with ti because ive already had surgery. I'm in so much pain and some days i can not walk to due to the pain i get going down my leg. I can't take it anymore but I dont know what to do.

Hi Natalie,

It sounds like you have been put through the mill a bit. As soon as S1 comes into play it normally means a twisted pelvis and this comes primarily from the muscles in the legs distorting the position of the pelvis. I would bet no one has ever done any deep muscle work on your legs but you will probably find this helps more than working on other areas.

If surgery has been done twice and the pain is still there stay well away from it again. It is obvously not a problem with the joint where they operated and that is all you will get from a surgeon.

I have posted lots of information on this site ( for free so you can work out what is going worng, what the likely cause of it is and what treatments you should be looking for. When you find the right therapist you will probably find the problem is fixed fairly easily so don't give up but don't be conned into expensive processes or drawn out treatments that don't fit the logic  that explains back pain.

Good luck,

Your back is a very complex biological construct. The series of tendons, muscles, ligaments and bones as well as other types of tissue that make up your back run from your neck all the way to your pelvis. The main feature of this is the spinal column; a grouping of bones separated by semi-flexible discs that act as a series of shock absorbers for your spine. These bones themselves act as a protective cage for your spinal cord which runs down the center of your spinal column. This system allows you a great deal of flexibility while continuing to protect you from severe spinal injury that could be caused by a bump or fall.

Dorn therapy is an effective way you may try for you to get rid of back pain. This is a gentle massage procedure gentle, simple, sensible, effective and innocuous, no medication, no damages whatsoever in treatments history.
