Dear Gokhale Method Team, how are you guys? I hope everything is very well.
My name is Christian Declercq, I am 39 years old, I am a photographer and I am currently residing in Lima, Peru.
A year ago, severe discomfort began in my left sciatic nerve, due to a ruptured of a herniated disc (L5-S1) and intense pain led me to undergo to back surgery, specifically an L5-S1 micro discectomy. I took great care of my back with Redcord Neurac Therapy and Pilates, all year long I was doing very well, doing sports, mountain biking and soccer, with a couple of episodes of pain caused because of carry a lot of weight (my child and a heavy backpack)
And now in my annual checkup, my resonance shows that the disk (L5-S1) is broken again. Although I do not have the same pain, it bothers me a lot and limits me in many movements. Also every time I stand up from being sited or lying down, I feel like the vertebra or something returns in place with an internal sound.
The neurosurgeon tells me now that he has to put a disc prosthesis and two titanium screws to fix my vertebra to my sacrum. So, something tells me that that is not the right way, i don´t want to continue manipulating my body, that is why I am very interested in your opinion. What happens to that disc now, I can recover it naturally? Is possible to recover the lost space between those vertebras? I really interested to learn the Gokhale Method.
Waiting for your answer
