Re: nerve pain
Hi - There are multiple pain or problem generators in our spines. One can be disc (like protrusions, herniations, shrinkage, etc.), another can be arthritis (osteophytes aka bone spurs), and there are several more. Even when they clean bone spurs out, you can grow more. You might want to schedule a one year follow-up appointment and get it checked out if it is bothering you or causing symptoms.
