Nate is feeling a little less pain today than he did yesterday.
I’m glad. I hate to have him hurt anymore than he already does.
I will watch him closely when he’s using the heating pad.
Thanks for bringing me that point. I hadn’t thought about that.
I might try an ice pack on his back for awhile to see how it feels for him.
I have a degenerated disk and when its hurting me, I use ice packs. It is the only thing that helps it and I can move better after.
My old doc said that last thing I needed to do to a swollen disk is put heat on it.
He also told me that if a spasm is really bad, shock it with ice. It works for me.
