with all the great minds on this site I'd figure I'd give it a shot in the dark and ask this question to the more "trained" persons of the site! 15 years ago I was in a bad car accident and was for the most part not expected to live. Well I did and now I'm getting tired of all the pain meds I'm still on for what ails me. My pain Management Doctor told me to do more "CORE" training to get my painful lower back into better shape. for the last 15 they have just been shooting my spine up with kenalog and Morphine . Well that led to me developing type one diabetes. So now I got to try something better then Drugs. I have full ROM . My Spinal doc told me I have advanced arthritis of my lumbar spine. Getting a MRI this week to see what the surgeon can do to help me out but for now working out is the best deal I have right now. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
