Hi Backpain21 - welcome to the support group -

following doctors orders is vital as you have a lot going on with your back for as young as you are. Doing the wrong kind of exercises and/or doing them incorrectly can cause more damage to your spine issues.

Seeing the right kind of doctor is vital. You should see either a Orthopedic Spine Specialist or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist. A current MRI (if over a year since last one) may need to be done to check to see what changes have taken place. They are the only ones that can properly read film reports, give a proper diagnosis and offer treatment plans.

please let us know what you find out~~
