Two herniated disc (L2L3, L4L5) in February 2015 from picking up a 50lb. box of paper. Tried chiropractor (two months) physical therapy (6weeks), recently had #8 epidural injetion (LESI), TENS unit, inversion table 3minutes a day. Off and on being put out of work for a few days - a week to rest. Was in a car accident December 2015, rear-ended; received a pinched nerve on L4L5 from that. To top it all off... fell last week at work and now have a lumbar strain. Out of work for one week and PT. Two surgeons won't operate
