Where I live, they won't pursue anything if it isn't major. I even contacted the insurance company involved at the time and they wouldn't even do anything about it, even though they were getting scammed! Amazing, and we wonder why insurance is so high....
Well, I did my second day of DL's, going up to 180 lbs this morning. Feels great so far, so I will continue to gradually increase the #'s. I've been doing strengthening for my back for several years now anyway, but this will hopefully add more muscle to my low back. I'm sure that if I hadn't been working out all this time, I would be in my back would be in much worse shape than it is. Some people I've talked with are amazed I can do what I can, so I guess comparitively speaking, it's not so bad. I'll just keep plugging away and see what happens.
