Q: 

Mild disc bulge- is it ok to do gym workouts? (MRI report attached)

A: Kushal,  By having you stop your weight training of the pecs and biceps, it will not make the disc bulge disappear.  what it will do is give your posterior scapular muscles time to gain some strength to help restore balance to your body.  Like I was telling you before, any pectoralis activity and biceps activity causes your scapula to tip forward and you will compensate with your neck position.  When you strengthen you scapular muscles, you pecs and biceps will not be able to pull the scapula forward as easily.  The worst position for your neck if forward flexion with a twist or turn.  Than will make the d

Q: 

2 MRI"s PLEASE HELP ME i hurt baaaad

A: Dear Khia, Neck MRI:  1.  an annular tear (C3/C4) is a tear of the outer ring of the disk.  This is fibrous tissue and contains a lot of pain fibers, when torn it can generate significant pain, muscle spasms and trigger points.  Degenerative disk changes mean that the disk is losing its fluid content and becoming thinner, the bulge is pushing backward into the spinal cord, but the cord size has not been reduced at all.  This

Q: 

MRI about Neck pain

A: Dear Jessica, The reason I sent you so much information is because I really think you should consider trying a good chiropractic physician before you see the neurosurgeon, as their only means of treatment is drugs or surgery...they don"t do any conservative care.  Although you may be sent to a physical therapist, PT"s have no training in vehicle injuries or the documentation of such. Concerning specific exercises, there really aren"t any, other than gentle range of motion activities and mild stretching.  Other specific exercises may be incorrect for you...unless I know what the spine looks like on x-ray, it

Q: 

Butt Pain

A: Dear Jimi, Print this answer it is lengthy and complicated. Bottom line here is that she likely has ligamentous, facet joint, sacroilliac joint and possible disk injury from the crash.  Medical professionals are often not trained well in the soft tissue of the body, and do not understand the pain patterns well or effective rehab techniques, especially after crash injury.  They just aren"t trained well in this field.   These things can be really complicated due to the nature of the forces generated in the initial impact as well as the changes of velocity to the body...


Q: 

chronic severe lumbar pain

A: Dear Sharri, Sorry it has taken me a couple of days to get back to you! I know that you have many specific questions, but what I am going to try to do is answer many of them together rather than separately.  I will try to keep an objective opinion on this. First of all any doctor who is unwilling to refer you to another doctor for a second opinion is in violation of not only their ethics, but is also violating your personal rights. This is unacceptable, and is just one reason for reporting to the state credential body.  I cannot believe that there

Q: 

Car Accident

A: Dear Kimberly, You are not alone and I have seen numerous cases such as yours in the past.  what most physicians fail to realize is that just because you cannot find a problem doesn"t mean it ceases to exist.  For instance, chronic degnerative diseases such as cancer and heart disease often go undiagnosed for years before they become symptomatic. Moreover, it is widely accepted in the clinical literature that pain can become chronic and be centralized in the central nervous system after the offending intial injury should have resolved.  Even though this

Q: 

chronic severe lumbar pain

A: Dear Sharri, I am completely shocked at what I have just read!!  I have never had to treat anyone for more than 3-4 months to reduce their pain significantly unless they have been in a car crash where they had sustained significant ligament damage to multiple areas of their spine or multiple disk bulges.  I cannot believe you have been seeing this doctor for so long, 3 times a week. I am sorry to hear that you are going through this, and I would recommend that you absolutely do not go back to this chiropractor ever again.  There is absolutely no scientific proof to validate
