I was rear-ended by some kid with no insurance on 7-12-00. Upon impact, I felt something like a hot wire in my left arm, lower back pain, and "saw stars".
I went to the chiropractor but the symptoms worsened. So, I was sent for an MRI. The results showed herniations at C3-4, C6-7, and L4-5, S-1.
The neurosurgeons think I had some pre-existing condition, but I am sure that the accident caused the herniations. The insurance company is looking to deny coverage because of these neurosurgeons' opinions.
I need help to fight that. Maybe, if I could show, through accident reconstruction, that the accident caused the herniated discs, I would have a chance with the insurance company. Does anybody know who could help me with that?
Then, I would like to be rid of this herniated disc problem. I have gymnastic inclinations and think that working out on the rings, or the high bar, would be beneficial. Does anybody have any supporting evidence of this that I can show my orthopaedic doctor?
How about yoga exercises? Would that help cure these herniations?
Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
