Hi Jayandleo,

Did you show the MRI scan reports to doctor and did the doctor confirm that the spine problem was because of masturbation? If you haven't asked you need to ask your doctor.

Sex is an important aspect of human living and sharing.
In my clinical practice so far I have not come across a case where masturbation is the culprit for a spine problem. There is no patho physiological mechanism whereby masturbation could injure or displace disc in lower spine.

I wonder whether you missed other causative trigger for your disc dislocation when you found its correlation with masturbation.
.
Often we do get people saying they have problems like back ache, head ache, weakness, exhaustion, depression, which are attributed to masturbation when actually there is no correlation other than the popular and strong misconception that masturbation is harmful.

I strongly recommend that you meet a qualified doctor with your MRI scans for examination and evaluation. It is important and necessary for you to get to the root of the problem.

Best wishes,
Dr. Ashok Koparday
