Well actually this is the guy that says it equals that and since he has a few books out it intimidated poor hubby and left me muttering ASSHOLE as we left his office. Enough said on that subject. Why have you not had a spinal MRI????? I'd tend to demand one
Lesions by the way are just a small part of the picture IMO I believe over all health and mobility is way more important. Sorry there is no link to my book as I haven't written it yet. But just maybe I shall in the future.
Dr. O'Connor by the way gave us a list of 5 things he could help us with:
1: Avoid Extremes of Stress
(We did that we will never see him again still muttering ASSHOLE)
2:Get enough rest
Actually have hubby on a 2 hour break and rest each day.
3:Avoid viral infections if possible.
I think that means bob and weave martial arts talk
4:Take extra vitamin D3 2000-4000 MIU/day
Doing that at 2000iu
5:Try to exercise at least 3 times per week
We do an 1/2 hour a day stretching as well as swimming an hour as well as hubby is a roofing contactor(up and down ladders all day). Does That count
Still muttering ASSHOLE by the way.
