Welcome to Spinal Cord Conditions/Disorders Community Please read this before you post!
This is a good place for info and support.
We are not doctors or health-care professionals. We are not qualified to give you better advice than your Doctor. This is simply a gathering of like-minded people sharing their experience and what we have discovered and hopefully putting things in “Plain English”.
Topics for this forum are spinal stenosis, tethered cord, Occulta tethered cord, bulging disks, and scoliosis, spinal cord injuries and or damage and anything that affects the spinal cord and treatments.
Most of all this forum is for support, If you need to talk, a lot of us check these boards daily or at least several times a week post your question and please be patient.
