Lumbar disk herniation has an uncertain natural history 

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

“Lumbar disk herniation has an uncertain natural history.” UNDERSTATEMENT.

Check out these before/after pictures of a disk herniation that solved itself. Look closely where the arrow is pointing. Read the single paragraph description of the case.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
