I herniated a disc in my neck C7-T1 with nerve impingement at a house fire a while back and I've been out of the water since Oct. I'm trying to be patient and hoping the physical therapy will work. I wasn't exactly smart and tried to do a quick fix with an epidural injection to get better before a surf trip to EL Salvador. It helped the first few days then I ended up just surfing through extreme pain which I realize wasn't smart. My physical therapist seems to think 4-6 weeks of therapy should help but says everyone is different. I am used to being very active w/ surfing, yoga, exercise and I've been relegated to desk duty and just stretches/exercises for PT. I searched others threads and found a book someone recommended, but it seems most was directed towards lower back. Anyone have any input on help with recovery or similar issue. Getting old sucks.
