Ok. Question. If a herniated disk is abutting the neuroforamin can this account for pain that can get severe with activity?
Wow. I am an attorney who helps disabled people get medical and financial benefits. You have the BEST pics on Twitter. They really help me understand these medical problems.

You are incredibly smart. keep up the great work.
With all your other commitments, how do you find time for surgery?
my brother in law just went thru this procedure back home in NJ..26 staples in his back Yikes !
Burst fracture? How does that happen?
My buttbone (L5-S1) was fused with titanium from anterior. They had to push my guts up into my chest. Post-op was not good for me...
I mentioned T12 and L1. I don't think he will acknowledge any of us who either nailed it (no pun intended) or came 90% close.
Do i get any props for being the first to guess burst fracture?
