    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I am very glad these procedures have helped you. Being that this is a public web site read by thousands each day, I must point out that not every treatment works for everyone.

    If anyone is having back pain, they should seek a diagnosis from a spinal orthopedic surgeon and/or spinal neurosurgeon. No one should every have treatment before seeing a spine specialist for a diagnosis as it could make their condition worse.

    After an accurate diagnosis is received then the patient may seek out the services of a pain management specialist that is a physiatrist. These doctors offer a wide variety of treatments that can help manage chronic pain.
