Back pain can be a jungle, Welcome to the Jungle.


In 1987 Guns-n-Roses hit song “Welcome to the Jungle” fits this spine, and that is not a good thing.  Axl Rose sings, Welcome to the jungle, we take it day by day, that is going to be our strategy   I think it is not likely to fully list all of the problems here but I will make a stab at it.  All os the spinal joints are degenerated so badly they are fused together, L2 has slipped forward on L3 (spondylolisthesis), the holes that the nerves pass through are closing in on the nerve (stenosis), some bone density loss, (osteoporosis), the abdominal aorta is calcified which will need to be evaluated by another doctor.  Compound these problems with the fact that he has been managing these problems with narcotics for over a decade, this will lead to increasing pain in the long run.  Frankly in the past I would have told this man I didn’t think I could help him.  However our Class IV Laser has been working wonders even on the most damaged spines.  I told him we were taking this day by day, great advice from Axl Rose.
