Re: Neck injury

There are several that show wear and tear. It's just that C5-C6 is somewhat worse. No good explanation as to the reason. First ortho said it was clearly from concussions 25 years ago. Second...

Re: Neck injury

As promised, this is a report of my orthopedic surgeon second opinion. WOW, what a difference between MDs! So different that I'm really confused now. Posting this in case it's helpful for...

Re: Neck injury

Greg, thanks for the info. I have another question, though. Did the MD say anything about there being additional concern for the adjacent discs now that you have (I assume, from your description):...

Re: Neck injury

Greg, that is very cool. I'd love to read more details. Were these cervical discs? Which ones? What exact kind of surgery? If they're both cervical, then how's your neck ROM now with a good...

Re: Neck injury

You should definitely talk to an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in necks. I will tell you what my first one said, but it's not good.

Avoid any exercise that loads the disc or cranks the neck:...

Re: Neck injury

Don't think so. Seems more likely that bone spurs and disc material will press on nerves and cause numbness and maybe pain radiating all the way down to the fingers.

I'm a little suspicious of the...

Re: Neck injury

I forgot to type something else that might be helpful or informative at least. I asked Mark Rippetoe about this after my first MD appt. He recommended to keep lifting and use chiropractic care to...

Re: Neck injury

I'll report back when I know more.

I think your theory is right about the lower back. For the back, strengthening the muscles helps to hold the spine in a more favorable position under load, so the...

Re: Neck injury

I'm a little confused. Does the MD think the degeneration is causing the pain? I thought Step 1 was to get a solid handle on exactly what's causing the problem and then come up with a plan. At...

Re: Neck injury

I'll be very interested to see how your situation turns out and what you learn because I have a very similar problem. Years ago, I had four concussions playing HS sports and I have a degenerating...

Re: Did you herniate a disc? Learn from me.

Nah, he's not wrong. Go over to Rippetoe's Q&A board and look it up or read about it in Starting Strength. Better yet, perhaps we could get some good comedy from Rip's reply if you try to make an...

Re: Split Jerk Neck pain

See a MD. Might be a cervical disc problem.

Re: Lifting After Hernia Surgery?

That's interesting because it's the opposite of what my surgeon said. He went ahead and fixed both sides (I had to push him a little to do this.), even though he didn't know there was a hernia on...

Re: Back pain from deadlifts

I understand. I've learned several painful lessons the same way, LOL.

I believe strongly in doing DL to create a strong back that's harder to injure, but doing it while fatigued doesn't pass my...

Re: Back pain from deadlifts

Not trying to sound like a smarty, but some of these workouts make absolutely no sense to me. Deadlift 1.5xBW for 55 times: no thanks, and I'm a former competitive PLer (i.e. no wimp who's afraid of...

Re: Lifting After Hernia Surgery?

I had this done last summer. I'm sure your surgeon said 4 weeks and that if the repair fails, it'll be during those initial stages. You do NOT want to repeat the surgery, expense, and rehab time. ...

Re: Shoulder Impingement

Quick tack-on question. Sorry, it's been done once in this thread and I can't resist the temptation, LOL.

I'm wondering if I have impingement also. If I put my left arm forward, bend my elbow so...

Re: Preventing Injuries

Learn to recognize when you're not adapted to an exercise. If that's the case, then do it with low intensity--way lower than your ego wants you to. "Adapted to" doesn't usually mean "having done it...

Re: The Snatch and neck pain

I thought of the disc because I actually have that problem from having 4 concussions in HS sports (the ortho's opinion anyway). Degenerating disc = the suck. If you don't have chronic neck pain,...

Re: The Snatch and neck pain

Any history of head injury, neck injury, or chronic neck muscle pain or spasms? Thinking about cervical disc problems.

Otherwise, stop over-doing it, LOL.

Re: Tire flip forearm soreness

True, but I assume the same pattern will continue.

FWIW, I think I got a case from 5-6 over-reaching workouts over the course of about a month.

Re: Tire flip forearm soreness

What part of the forearm? Before maybe over-reaching when it comes to grip intensive work, do a search around here for Golfer's Elbow. You do NOT want to get a case of that.

Re: 5/3/1 and Crossfit questions from Wendler

Just curious because I'm very interested in what he has to...
