Has anyone here ever suffered from a herniated or bulging disc, particularly in the low-back (lumbar) region? My husband and I were rear ended in January and I've had steadily progressing low-back pain since. I've been seeing a chiropractor regularly all this time but since my symptoms didn't seem to be getting better (and then my back completely went out about two weeks ago while making the bed), I finally had an MRI done and it turns out I have a bulging lumbar disc. Not a complete herniation, but the pain is pretty significant. I have to wait another few weeks before I can see the orthopaedic surgeon for a consult (due to availability) but I have have been looking into different excercises that I may do to hopefully help heal the bulge on my own. Have any of you ever experienced any such disc issues and maybe have some non-surgical success stories/tips/tricks to share?
Thanks so much in advance.
