Drive, I have a CT scan which shows a disk prolapse at L4/L5. My doctor (he is very open minded and does adjustments himself) says that chiropractic treatment can be dangerous if someone has a disk prolapse (it could aggravate the prolapse).

What is a disk prolapse?  I've never heard of that!  But it sounds like you've done the legwork, and chiro is not a good option for you, so I won't try to sell you on it anymore

Don't forget a good massage therapist!
No, I can't afford it as much as I'd like to go, either!
But regular massage should 'loosen up' certain areas safely.

Maybe we can have a thread if chiropracy works better or worse for nonnies, also.
Any takers?
Thanks,

What is a disk prolapse?

Drive, a disc prolapse is also called 'disc protrusion', 'disc extrusion' or 'disc herniation'. It means that the disc has moved partly out of its normal space. When it does this, it often pinches a nerve, in the case of leg pain, mainly the sciatic nerve.
Mrs T., yes a good massage therapist can be great. I am having regular 'Hellerwork sessions' - which is like a very deep tissue massage combined with structural integration.
I read Lola's post on corn ingredients last night and found out that ascorbic acid and lysine are likely to be made from corn. I have taken these 2 supplements in the first 3 month of my pain (have finished them a few weeks ago). That means I was taking avoids without knowing it. Maybe that stopped my progress.

Iíve tried acupuncture twice and I donít like it.  Years ago I tried it to quit smoking and it was useless for me.  More recently I tried it for something else and the discomfort of the needles made me stop.  Iíll try almost anything else again before that.

I have heard of those terms.  My father suffered from a herniated disc years ago!
