My l5 s1 protrusion
I'm a soon to be a 61 year old male have drove a 18 wheeler for 35 years now have had back problems off and on but the last year or so has be worse went 4 months ago for severe hip and pelvic pain back of legs have sharp pain numbness of toes and ankles very weak I have just been laid off from my job. thinking of signing up on my disability. Dr says this is only going to get worse at my age is this true?
I was treated with pharmaceuticals for a decade because of multiple bulging disks. Doctors never once suggested a non-medical solution. I discovered acupuncture in 2008, and since then have been completely off all medications, and I am virtually pain free. When my back flares up, I'll have acupuncture and that only happens a few times per year.
Doctor's aren't always right, so I suggest alternative therapy such as acupuncture.
Best wishes for good health!
