My son is in Bali at the moment and has got a herniated disc in his neck his chiropractor told him when he was treating him for a sore neck. He does a lot of weight training and has also been doing a job which was a lot of heavy lifting in previous years. Should he get back to NZ to get sorted as I am worried about him. He has pins and needles down his arm and in awful pain. His physio and chiropractor told him to wait a couple of days on his pain med and anti inflammatory to see how it goes. I would like your input please.

can muscles around your heart get strained? Age : 46 Height: 5 8 Weight : 185lbs Has herniated discs in back T2-T3,T4-T5,T5-T6,T7-T8,T8-T9. Had stents placed in heart arteries 2-3 years ago. Had tests done a couple of weeks ago - ECG (?) and scans - everything is fine. Gets concerned with the back pains that is being caused by the herniated discs, because pain comes to the chest area as well.
