Home Traction: After you get re-evaluated by someone with experience in spinal treatment, like an orthopedist or a good osteopathic gp, you might be a good candidate for home cervical traction. These units are simple to use after basic instruction, very cost effective, and can provide a great deal of relief from neck (and as a result, back) pain.Best of all, there is no issue of being "hooked" on pain meds!

Think-Cervical Facet: Disc bulge may be an incidental finding. Probably may be a contribution of the cervical facets. See a spine physiatrist, pain m.D or spine physician.
