Severe Low Back Disease: Look to a Physiatrist for Rehab Help
I have severe spinal stenosis, spondylosis, pinched nerves, bulging disc & L4 & L5 out of place, degenerative arthritis, sciatica. What is my best options? I have had epidurals with no luck. Plus I need 2 joint replacements in both knees & it pisses me off more than anything when doctors or people in general tell me to exercise. I can't even stand up for 5 minutes without screaming pain in my back. I can hardly walk because of my knees. What are my options?
