My physical therapist said she was pretty certain itís a herniated L4/L5 disc. Go figure itís the same one I herniated in high school... She did dry needling and then pelvic traction this past week (which hurt like heck that night by much better the following days), but is going to suggest to the doc that I get an MRI and a cortisone shot sooner rather than later. I suppose it better I do this in the fall than the spring.

Traction wont solve this and prob...therapy should never cause pain afterwards btw. Rest, anti inflammatory Drugs, steroids are the best option initially. Try the epidural shot w steroids for quickest relief. After 6wks if ur not making significant progress, surgery may be the answer. Don’t procrastinate w nerve issues if they don’t improve, you could end up w irreparable damage.

Since everyone likes pictures... two herniated discs with the L3/4 much worse than the L4/5. To top it off they feel have an inflamed Piriformis muscle. Starting with injections then going from there.

Just met with the orthopedic surgeon today . In 1988 I broke my back in a hunting accident . Thirty years later I have a misformed vertebrae , one buldged disk and two torn . Gave me the option of spinal fusion or steroid injections . Steroid injections it is
