Quick answer is NO. I scoured the internet to see what the research had to say, and the only thing I found about paralysis was an osteophyte, or a piece of extra bone growth that compressed the vocal cords, and that was only one person.

Personally, i’ve never seen some become paralyzed from degenerative disc disease, and most people who have back pain and are symptomatic tend to do really well with a movement program in addition to improving their beliefs around their spine.

If you have a herniated disc and you have progressive numbness, tingling, bowel and bladder changes, and weakness, that you don’t take care of, yes, that could lead to paralysis, but that’s about it

What do you think? Are you still afraid about becoming paralyzed?
