I've been a member for quite a few years now. But may be new to most of you. I've been suffering chronic pain for many years. But my worst fear was for anyone I know and especially a loved one to have to go through any spine problems.
My daughter had issues with cervical problems. Now more recently, lumbar. A bulging disc at L4, and degenerative disk desease like the old man! Luckily she went to a Dr. I know of and respect. He Tries to take the least invasive techniques . For now he's tried a mederol pack that was successful. So she had a epidural a few days ago. And is having good results with that. She travels quite a bit with her job. So there is luggage that was old and out dated, HUGE! I know it was causing problems, so I got her a new set.
My son also has some back problems.
They've seen what Dad has gone through. And don't want to make the same mistakes that I have. I'll help them any and every way I can. I really think there are some genetic traits passed down from me!
