      @luteallady neurosurgeon recommended Vis disc injection and alternative pain intervention doctor recommended ablation. It was really hard to find those two docs that specifically had the ability to do those procedures since my normal back doctor could only do steroid injections and meds. If you’re interested in those I’d recommend looking up the procedures and what doctors in your area offer them versus just going to one of those types of doctors and hoping they have alternative options to common practices.

      Disc is made of type I and II collagen so I take supplements with both and hyaluronic acid. Type II collagen is specifically more effective to prevent further degeneration in disc but much harder to find in supplements. There’s also an injection called Vis Disc injection where human cadaver of disc nucleus along with “disc material” is injected straight into the disc in hopes that by giving it the make up of a disc it can regenerate itself. My doctor recommended that and I’m going to try that after getting an ablation soon.
