Helpful Exercise that worked

I know there are many that have seen doctors today that surgery is the best option. I will honestly tell you that there was a great doctor that I had seen at Loma Linda U. that thought surgery was the very last option. He believed that some exercise works the best.

I had fallen cracking my neck and ruptured 2 disks. When I went to see him he told me that everything would heel in time. Although he recommended certain exercises that would help. I am not one for any type of masking medications and don't take them in the worst of pain. Mainly because, sometimes you can't localize where it is.

I used this devise called the Spine Shark. I followed the exercises both given by my doctor and the video that came with it. To my amazement the device started working. The pain on my hip and down my leg started to diminish. I continued using the device till I could walk normal. I would recommend that everyone talk to there doctor and ask them if there is any type of exercises that can be done to help relieve the pain.

My biggest fear was being hooked on any type of medication for long term. I also didn't want to be so unbearably in pain. So I took the doctors advise on the exercise. I heard about the SPINE SHARK from a friend and purchased one. It was the best thing I did. I have a little problem every now and then. I use the devise and I am able to be pain free. I highly recommend it. You can look it up yourselves. I do NOT have any interest in the company, nor do I sell them. I just wanted to share my experience and hope that it may help some.
