What's my next course of action?
« on: February 18, 2008, 09:01:36 PM »


For the last 4 years I have suffered from back pain, all the way from my lower back up into the back of my head, too the extent that the back of my jaw has started cracking and feeling uncomfortable.  Having spent numerous sessions at physio's and chiro's, with no relief ( a little from the chiro), I went to my Doc and then to get CT scans.  They showed 3 herniated discs. 
1 mild one in my mid back and two severe ones in my lower back, LV 4 and 5, I think. 

All my muscles in my back are a mess, and feel tight constantly.  The worst pain is between my shoulder blades and in my neck, both cronic.

About 4 years ago I was also diagonsed with bursitis of my left shoulder, it was treated but not cured, I was told surgery was my only option. 

Could my problem lie with this aswell as my herniating discs?   ???

Any advice is welcome and meet with thanks.   :-*

Hi Dutts, your symptoms could be the product of totally locked up erector spinae muscles. This is fixable but not with conventional physio or chiropractic. Do you live near to an SLM therapist? If not there are plenty of ways of working on this with my self treatment program and with my guidance via the private members area in the back pain forum I would be confident of getting this under control for you.
