Re: spinal cord flattened to 5 to 6 mm from auto accident

Have you seen a doctor on this? The normal average is about 9mm anything less than that starts to get compromised. If you are nearing 5mm or less you are approaching 1/2 the normal size.

There are so many problems this could cause, are you having symptoms? What are the doctors recommending to you?
