Herniated disc sufferers: what has worked for you?
I have a herniated disc in my lower back that is pinching my sciatic nerve. It hurts a lot.
I went to the doctor today and he prescribed some oral steroids for the pain, which have actually worked great, but I’m wondering what my next step should be: yoga? physical therapy? chiropractics? leave it alone? walk around? different drugs? injections?
Surgery is the ultimate option, but I’d like to avoid it if I can.
