Yes a thousand times. I have had one for about 6 months and it helps immensely with posture. Only complaint is that the lumbar cushion it comes with is way too big and kind of pushes you out of the seat, but that can be fixed with a cheap lumbar pad like this one.
Other than that one issue, the chair is incredible. The build quality is fantastic, mine still looks brand new. The reclining feature is brilliant, you can lie down nearly horizontal. Also, it looks really cool! Definitely worth the price.
I put these on everything I sit on regularly. Cheap enough that they're worth the investment.
I just got operated for a lumbar disk hernia but it was much worse than yours. But also my problem was L4-L5 as shown into your picture.
I am not a doctor but I spent months of researching and trying to avoid surgery and I just did it right in time before it got worse because it started to affect me more.
I couldn't see your whole MRI gdrive on phone but based on the first photo I see it is a lumbar disk hernia without nerve compression (yet). I can not tell if yours is yet operable or not but for sure your actions will be limited for a very long time (i tried to stay positive and not say forever). You should avoid carying any weight at all and don't jump, don't run, don't do sudden moves. These are the things my doctor said to me. Also, a very good advice he gave me, I suggest you a lumbar chair support for your spine and the position to always be with your body standing on your back as much as you can and not in the 90 degrees position with your ass dirrectly on the chair. That puts a lot of pressure on the already damaged spine and this is why you have these pains. It is a serious matter because you can cause a bigger rupture and the disk can get out more and press on your nerves * and trust me you'd chose death before those pains. It is incredibly, horribly painful* and please forgive me i don't intend to scare you, i am about your age. I just hope you will learn from my mistakes. I also had an accident and i chosed to ignore the consequences that on the long term got me worse.
If your doctor recommends you surgery, do it. Your young body can heal much faster and on a long term you will be totally fine. Of course you'll go through a period of recovery as I am now, but you will feel much better and your spine will begin to heal.
this is the support i am talking about. Trust me it is so much worth it. You can search for this. My
Doctor recommended me this support and now i use it everywhere, i will use it in my car too when i will drive again!
Stay confident and be optimistic. You will be fine! Follow your doctor's instructions!
