Re: Bulging Disc?

Definitely other options, most people don't need surgery, depends on the severity of the injury, and how quickly you recover. Physical therapy/rehab, retraining, pain control, and time (probably a...

Re: Herniated Disc L4-L5: Very Discouraged

Good thoughts Glenn and Chester. I think as you slowy come back from an injury like this, and learn how to move the right way - both in life and in exercise, confidence returns. I may never be the...

Re: Herniated Disc L4-L5: Very Discouraged

No problem Chester, I'm happy to help - I hate for anyone to have to go through this.

Re: Herniated Disc L4-L5: Very Discouraged

Yes Chester, I think we have very similar injuries, but mine is left. My pain was mainly in the side of my butt (thought it was my SI joint), radiating down to the back of my leg, lateral knee, and...

Re: Herniated Disc L4-L5: Very Discouraged

As far as exercises, focus on PT and take it slow at first....push ups, air squats, pull ups without a large kip, ring rows, ring dips, walking lunges, wall balls, swimming if you have access. Avoid...

Red face Re: Fairly sure I've got a herniated disc. Again.

Good luck Matt. Sorry to hear that bud. Hopefully, with time, you will make dramatic improvement like you have in the past. I've come a long way in 10 months with Mckenzie (but don't over-do...

Re: spondylolisthesis + slight herniation

Peter, I have the exact same injury/problem - occurred July 2012. This is pretty darn common, but every situation is a little different. Bottom line is you can likely still Crossfit but you do need...

Re: Isabel and lower left back pain

Hmmmm. Hard to say. If you've had injuries in the area in the past you may want to seriously consider a professional eval, bite the bullet and really try to figure out what the problem is so you...

Re: Why is Overhead Press Destroying my Lower Back

Re: Why is Overhead Press Destroying my Lower Back

Thanks Dan. Great info. I herniated a disc on a fateful day in which I lost form on high rep deadlifts (no doubt preceded by other injurious maneuvers). In the process of recovery I performed...

Re: Lower back pain. Tendon/ligament issue?

I'd consider further eval. X rays aren't great for looking at muscles, discs and spinal cord. Consider seeing a good physical therapist at least. You may ultimately need an MRI if not improving. ...
