So over the summer in July 2015 I was digging a trench with backhoe. It was all sand, was digging to put waterline in. Anyways I jump down in hole to measure the depth right up against the house and my employee was holding top of measuring tape and as he stepped closer the sand caved in on my back. I had some pain for awhile but nothing really major til about December 2015... Mainly running bigger saws out of the bucket truck.. So since I just had tendon surgery I decided to have a mri on thoracic spine and it says : small left lateral disc herniation at t8-t9 without impingement on the cord". I decided not to go to a specialist for this since last time I went for my bulging disc in lumbar spine it was a useless visit and just did therapy. But thinking I need a cervical mri also since more pain is that area... Any suggestions on therapy, chiropractor etc? Or any other treatments for this condition? Thoracic is one of the harder spots on the spine to damage but I did.. I already have chronic lyme disease so can't have cortisone shots or else it will suppress my immune system.
