I really hurt myself the other day and tomorrow I am getting an appointment set up with a chiro. I saw one before but he told me nothing could be done. That was 14 years ago when I was 20. He was a christian also and going to a word of faith healing-beleiving church. He really was a snotty person when I look back. Not much of a believing christian and to say that to a young impressionable hurting kid too. I've had buried Depression from what he said to me. Now that I have hurt myself I am going again and I am going to keep trying to help myself. I am going to keep swimming only this time frequently if there is no pain.. I am so sorry for anyone else that has had to go through this kind of pain. I just had some breakthroughs with my digestive system and then this happened. It has forced me to realize that I never did take care of this problem or try to work on it.
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between a ruptured and herinated disc? I have at least scolosis at the L-3 L-4 area. I'm not sure what else, there could be a third vertebrae or more involved now.
