Back Pain Expert Has Some Healing Advice for Regis
Who wants to be pain-free? Well, Regis for one. Free of back pain. Is that your final answer?
Yes, Regis Philbin, broadcast TV icon and co-host of the morning talk show “Live with Regis and Kelly,” has complained about recurring back pain at his show from time to time.
A few months ago on the show, Philbin, who is in his mid-70s, talked with Kelly Ripa about his back pain, which his doctor attributed to degenerative discs.
“He gave me a shot, and – I swear to God – the next day I felt good,” Philbin told Ripa on the show. “I had these shots – corizone, maybe a little steroids.”
Philbin was teased about being ” ‘roided up,” by the show’s producer Michael Gelman. “For a few days, I was hopped up, according to Gelman,” said Philbin, who admitted, “I am tired of feeling hurt.”
“I feel Regis Philbin’s pain, but the long-term solution to his back pain is not through the use of drugs, and let me tell you why,” says back pain specialist Jesse Cannone, co-founder of The Healthy Back Institute. “His degenerative disc disease is not actually a disease at all. It’s a term that describes the natural changes the spinal discs undergo as a person ages. As a disc degenerates, it may put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, which often leads to pain and may affect nerve function.”
