I have been looking at treatment options for schmorl's node endplate protrusion but haven't found anything more than self limiting/conservative treatment. I have done physiotherapy, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, cupping therapy, electrical stimulation therapy and heat packs. Now all of these treatments gave me temporary relief and I'm wondering what else I can try as I'm not a candidate for fusion surgery. Symtoms are burning, muscle pain and spasms, occasionally I feel a needle poking sensation if I'm standing to long. I feel very weak and even lifting things such as a laptop or books causes a flare up. The worst for me is sitting on any chair in my college which doesn't have back support. I'm only 24 and this condition has really taken a toll on me. If anyone has schmorl's nodes please share any information that has helped, thank you.
