Treated as drug seeker except for chiropractor. Inversion table and treatments had me almost cured but insurance ran out. I blew out l5 and had lumbar fusion. Had to be in WC but progress ed OK. Started back to work and steadily declined. Had laminectomy and am truly deteriorating. Can't stand or walk over ten min. Sitting hurts. Leg pain is killing me and hamstrings tight. My leg sometimes turns inside with my foot toward my face. Changing jobs now to see if that helps.
