L-5 bulged disc on the anterior side of my spine
Have had this problem for the last five years. Been to numerous chiropractors.
They adjust my lower back but after about three weeks, my L-5 is locked up again.
I’m told that the muscles on the left side that hold my lumbar disc in place at the L-5 are stronger than the right side which has weakened up due to my low back injury.
I’ve done countless low back exercises and nothing has completely strengthen my right side muscles to permanantly stablized my disc. Right now it hurts just sitting.
I’m considering surgery.
Has anyone damaged their L-5 or have gotten better from a bulged disc?
If so, HOW? I also seen a bone and joint surgeon and all he said that they can do would be to fuse my last two discs together. Please e-mail me directly.
ThanksThe chiropractor that I’m seeing now told me that I suffer from a lumbar-sacral condition where my L-5 slides off my sacrum to the right and then outward. So it’s a bit rotated outward
