Here is a topic I don't see discussed often.

How do you recover from injuries you suffer during training ??

Do you have a system of recovery ??

Do you back off from training hard and go light for awhile until you recover ??

Do you stop altogether until you're healed ??


Let's hear it.

My back injury is a herniated disc...it hurt like a bitch, but I should've kept working out. Now in recovery, I have to make up for lost time.

Sad thing about a herniated disk is that it doesn't heal itself. I worked in the medical profession for 15 years and scrubbed in on several herniated disk procedures and the only way to reduce the pressure on the nerve is to clip\cut off the portion that has bulged out. Its a simple procedure but recurrence is common. So be careful with that back pain, especially if it involves a herniation.

Mine is in the best possilbe position...if that makes any sense. lol

L5 and the herniation is inward directly into the column. When I hurt it, I could barely move. Luckily, with work on an inversion table it has receded to the point that it no longer touches on my nerves. It's still there, and I know it could give me pain again...but I'm not going to "baby" it like I had.
