Hope - Yes, they can get better. But it really depends on whats wrong, to what degree, and what is being done about
it. I know a few people who honestly through either chiropractic of physical therapy who have had disc herniations and bulges fix themselves over time. There are specific exercises that can be done to help them. Also sometimes things like traction can help as well. If your doctor hasn't put you through physical therapy and such, you may want to speak to him about
I will say though, once you have the destabilization of one part of your spine it makes it easier for other parts of your spine to decide they don't want to work right either. It's sort of like making a castle out of building blocks, every single one you take out effects how the entire thing balances. As one stops doing it's job correctly somewhere else has to handle that burden as well - making it's job harder, and it more likely to break down. Just remember to take it slowly, and easy. No quick turns, not quick bending, no playing bumper cars, if you are hoping for them to heal you have to give them a rest.
These are all questions I hope if you haven't that you talk to your doctor about
. I would ask to see a specialist as well, because they are going to be able to give you the best idea of what to hope.
