|Looking for some advice
Players, that is both men and women, looking for some sage advice. I have sciatica and have suffered it for years. I had an x-ray and it was discovered I have Anteriolisthesis, which is not just a slipped disc, but a misalignment of the vertebra itself. The remedy surgically requires a spine fusion where rods are screwed into the two vertebra to stabilize the spine. I`m 81 but in decent shape. Any one with experience with this disorder or have had friends undergo this procedure? Opinions and advice are welcomed. Cuda

|As a last ditch effort to avoid the fusion that two MD's (a Neuro-Surgeon & an Orthopedic Back Specialist) recommended, I began Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in the L4-L5 area by a Non-Surgical Sports Medicine Physician. The injections were given four weeks apart in October, November & December of 2018. In mid-January 2019, the doctor also performed a caudal injection in the area. Two weeks later, he gave me a second caudal injection but in the right piriformis muscle only. The last caudal injection was given into the right piriformis muscle in early March. My symptoms began subsiding in February until they went away completely within several weeks. It's a MIRACLE to play pain free(to date) for the first time in over five years!
