By the age of 26 I had been fighting some type of back pain for years. It had become a normal way of life. I still was able to do most of anything I wanted to until “The Day.” While replacing our garage door, I went to lift the old door when it happened, a big pop in my back. Four hours later I was unable to get out of bed. I was experiencing what we know as a “classic disc protrusion.” For the next two weeks I was bed ridden. After that I went back to work using a cane for about a month to keep weight off my left leg.
