After my last car wreck, several years ago, I had severe back pain 24/7.  The one before that did damage to the sciatic nerve.  (both times someone rear-ended me)   Minimally Invasive Spine Institute is definitely an option if the severe pain returns.

I have learned over the years to stoop not bend and this protects the sciatic nerve.  The only back pain I have now is if I stand for any length of time with little movement.  After about 3 1/2 to 4 hours at work, my back will start hurting.  That is why I ask to please not work anymore than 5 hour shifts.  Usually after being off for about 2 hours, my back will quit hurting, occasionally, I do have to take pain meds.
