Ive been hurting for the last month pain pills didn oft help i was told to get a walker crutches or a cane to get pressure off my back would that help
First of all everyones pain is different. I have had a fusion from L3-S1 from the back and L4-S1 from the front plus 3 additional surgeries due to infection, loose hardware and rejection of bone graft. Prior to surgery I did not use a cane but found out the more I moved around the more my sciatica would ease up. After surgery I have found that the use of a cane does help me take pressure off my back reducing the pain. Best of luck to you.
