Hi, well many years ago, I had that kind of pain, came and went, depending on what I did, as the years went by, I got worse and worse and could do very little but was afraid to have surgery as all I got was negative advise, every Dr. scared me, Then in 2010 I found a Dr. Chad Prusmack from Rocky Mountain Spine clinic, who looked at me and said straight away," I can fix you," you are not living a quality life, Let me fix you..! It was the L5 S1 that was the real problem. I said OK, I had the surgery and I did as he told me, first thing, get up and walk every day he said after ward. I did, faithfully, and I have been good and problem free and able to do whatever I wanted for four years now, however I have over done it and caused my self grief, but in the long haul of things, I felt grateful for no more pain..
