Hi there. My name is Dave, I am a 63yr old male 75kg relatively fit and in good health. I have worked mainly in a manual job most of my working life. I have recently had an MRI and CT scan.
CT report says:1 Lumbar Scolosis. 2 A relatively narrow bony spinal canal. 3 Moderate dural sac stenosis at L4/5 4 A shallow central disc protrusion at L5/S1 superimposed in a generalised disc bulge without direct nerve root impingement. 5 Shallow disc bulges above L4/5. 6 Multilevel facet joint degeneration.
MRI report says: 1 Shallow lumbar scollosis. 2 Shallow disc bulge at L2/3 and 3/4 with disc desication at the latter. 3 Moderate degenerative change in the L4/5 disc with a broad disc bulge and a far right lateral disc protrusion abutting the exiting right L4 root. 4 Modest dural sac narrowing, not significant and subarticular recess narrowing at the take off of the L4roots and the L5 roots. 5 Modest facet joint degeneration.
I have recently aquired a copy of 8 steps to a pain free back and have received some physio instruction, and earlier had chiropractic treatment. Have done 2 days of stretchsitting, ordered your cushion and a free internet workshop. I am finding possitive changes happening to my right lower back, hip, buttock, leg, groin pains. Had very small changes from physio. Back and side stretchlying tend to aggravate things.
Really pleasing results thank you. Question: Do I need to do more stretchsitting before carrying on with programme?
