Diagnosis via MRI is noted above. Stretches, exercises, etc needs to be done everyday and every time I feel the pain. As a greenhouse farmer, I was given help on how I can use my back and what to do when I have pain! It will never BE CURED! Pain is pain is pain and will be with me forever! I do not and will not take Aleve or a painkiller! It is destroying my liver! I am not a candidate for surgery! But all of the above treatments help IMPROVE my daily pain!
