According to the Instagram post, he has started a new spinal treatment in his home of Costa Rica.

“This procedure is 1x a week for 2-3 months,” he says. “Each week a series of 12-24 shot injections into my spinal chord, muscle, & ligaments from my legs, up to hips, then, low and middle back, to repair all my ligaments in the area, plus weekly IV'S to go with it!”

Carlile suffers from Marfan Syndrome, a rare connective disorder. He often uses his platform to raise awareness for the disorder, frequently working with the Marfan Foundation.

 

Thinking of & praying for you @yourlivingdeadgurl! Start feeling better soon okay? ❤

He continues: “My team recently discovered that the ligaments in my body are deteriorating faster than expected and this has been a root of some of my problems and a lot of my PAIN.”

Carlile announced his departure from Of Mice & Men in the final days of 2016. Aaron Pauley, Alan Ashby, Phil Manansala and Valentino Arteaga are continuing as a four-piece.

In his statement, Carlile added he will continue to play music.

“I will be here in Costa Rica, where I have now moved, continuing to heal, rest, and write,” he says. “I will not stop playing music, I am still able to sing and I’m hungry for what is next to come even though I have no idea what that may be.”

“Today's view: Been inactive on Instagram (my “Facebook” is fake) lately because I have actually been inactive. Recently started another (hopefully final) spinal treatment here in Costa Rica.

My team recently discovered that the ligaments in my body are deteriorating faster than expected and this has been a root of some of my problems and a lot of my PAIN. So I'm taking this next #MarfanSyndromeTreatment head on! Will be a rough few weeks ahead but I have faith! God give me strength and lets go! ������ I will be overcoming and recovering from this before seeing some of you THIS Summer! ☺�� /// Living with #MarfanSyndrome is tough, but we are stronger… “Marfans means dealing with constant daily pain, people dealing with it must have a full reserve of strength” -Melissa Hormanski ��❤ I love you guys!!! And thank you for the support as always and I'm sorry I haven't been able to reach out to you all lately, excited to share more about this Summer though! �� ❤ Un agradecimiento especial a todos en Costa Rica que me ayudan ORAN por mí el vendrá pronto! Dios bendiga! ������ @themarfanfoundation @marfansyndromeawareness #MarfanSyndromeAwareness”
