      @Clarence Marino III I understand the dilemma, I also have a somewhat large family. Not quite as large as yours. I also understand the fear of the chiropractor, the wrong manipulation can injure you worse. There are therapies such as facet injections, lumbar epidural. You would want to run these by your pain management doctor and see if any of them apply. Also don't be hesitant about getting second opinions. Sometimes a different perspective makes a world of difference. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Wishing you less painful days.

      @jamezbond 007 I tried Chiropractic therapy once and I was out of work for a month and on lite duty for 3 months because the doctor didn't look at the MRI disc that I gave him and treated me like just any other patient. I haven't gone to another one out of fear that I will get hurt again because I cant afford to be off of work. I have 6 kids and my Dad has dementia so I take care of them all. Even though my wife says I do too much its something that I have to do. I cant take opiates cause I am allergic to them. I really like the tens unit w/ Ice/heat.

    I have a severe herniated disc on my lower back at first it just started with just constant pain but a month later it started to pinch my sciatic nerve pretty bad and now I’ve been suffering from this sciatic nerve pain it’s been 8 months already and it doesn’t seem to go away the orthopedic doctor gave me a steroid shot and didn’t help at all I also took medication but the pain is still bad and he told me if it’s that bad to get surgery but I’m not if I should do it ..

    Yes I know how annoying it is. The side of my left leg is numb all the time. Sometimes my toes are numb. My back hurts most of the time and has for years. I'm 72 and did this to myself by lifting something that weighed 150 pounds when I was 30ish. Oh, and I'm a girl. Follow the rules or you'll be even sorrier the older you get.

Please, as silly as the rules sound, follow them. I went swimming 2 days after a small surgery on both knees, all - was fine, but that was before I For a call out of the blue that my younger sister had died from something far less danerous than me going swimming.. Sending prayers for your healing, and that you are minding the rules..

    Matt, you are really ticking me off. That stunt on the treadmill was so not cool. My forty two year old son is recovering from a spinal fusion rods, screws, the whole nine. This is his second back surgery. He is 6ft 7, you do not want to experience his pain level ever. I have degenerative disc disease down my whole back. You have kids to raise, you want to able to climb bleachers to watch whatever sport they may want to play? You would be ticked if you set a dogs leg and the owner said,”I’m gonna take him for a short walk, I’m sure it will be alright.”

    Matt,please just follow doctors orders,at least for a month or so,then start slowly.I had my first back surgery and didnt exactly get to follow docs orders due to family stuff.Then workmans comp sent me back to work too early .So three more back surgeries later and including an infection that almost killed me and landed me in hospital for six weeks,I am left in constant chronic pain. You can also damage nerves that can change everything for you like bladder continence,E.D. for men and even things like lifting a leg high enough to step over things. Back issues are nothing to play with or take lightly,better to err on the cautious side. Not preaching,just love you and want to see you healthy and happy.

    I had a herniated disc at L5S1 @ 15yo and a microdiscectomy surgery at 20yo (I'm 36 now) from weight training in high school. 6-7 steroid injections, A few years of PT. My first consultation for surgery was with a surgeon who wanted to put in 2 8in metal rods in my back at 17yo, that was a hard no from me and my mom. And quit pursuing surgery until I lost feeling on the inner sides on my feet when I was 19. 16 years later, I'm still doing great and I hope your recovery goes just as well!

    Dude, think about what this video says to people who aren't elite athletes in top physical condition, and even those who are. Particularly the men are going to think you're saying they're wussy if they follow the doc's instructions. You may get away with it, but most of us wouldn't. You probably won't get away with it. I know you hate being inactive, and you hate being even temporarily laid up. Just how long do you want to be laid up, is the question.

    Matt for goodness sake stop being a macho hardhead and listen to your wife and your doctors.

And if you don't care about the impact on you then think about how that will impact everyone else around you. Quit being an idiot and rest up.

    You know, Matt, you are a doctor. If people did not follow the directions you give them for their pet, their pet will suffer. You tell them those things for a reason. Same with your surgeon. He know these things. When I worked in surgery,, they did these a lot! But they KNOW that you must do what they tell you. If you weren't going to do what they told you, why did you even bother with the surgery?

Yeah, he walked a mile, but a lot of doctors will have you walking out of the hospital that same day depending on the severity.

    Dr. Matt, you need to take the time to heal from your surgery. I have had lumbar spine surgery with hardware; I had a neuro-stimulation implant done last August -- none of these have worked. I have been under the care of pain specialists for more than 12 years. Between the first and second surgeries, my left leg would just give way and I would fall. It's a miracle I didn't break any bones. Dr. Matt, PLEASE DO NOT be foolish -- follow your doctor's instructions or you will ultimately regret not doing so. I don't want to see that happen to you. I am 76 years old now, and I'm paying the price for foolish driving mistakes, mistakes not mine, but never the less, I am paying the price! Seriously, take care of yourself and follow your doctor's instructions. Remember, NO BLT's (Bending, Lifting or Twisting! I've been at pain level 9 for a very long time. Don't push yourself too hard! Take it from an old woman!

    Military incident, 2 herniated disks 8th & 9th thoracic. Right in the curve of my spine. Pain 24/7 gets worse the more I move. Can't stand too long, sit too long, sleep in one spot too long, run, lifting anything over 50 lbs. .....I know how you feel. Glad it worked out. If I sit or stand too fast, my spine locks up with a sharp pain. Standing too long causes my right arm to feel like a hot knife is running up and down my arm.
