Hello there, this is my first post here.
I'm 21 years old and I've been training for around 3,5 years now. I've made some pretty good
progress so far but 2,5 years ago I got a herniated disc in my lower back and since then it causes me pretty intense pain. It has got better since and some days it doesn't even bother me at all but sometimes i might do a wrong move like use bad form in an exercise, especially leg exercises and it causes me pain for up to 2 - 3 days. I can't squat,deadlift,bent over row and military press. Pretty much anything that puts my lower back under stress.I've worked around it though and made some good progress. I've recently started doing a lot more core work like planks and birdogs and the pain slowly goes away but if i do a wrong move I get the pain days, as i mentioned earlier. Fortunately, i don't numb legs or anything, like in worse cases, it just pinches me a lot in my sciatica nerve and feels stiff. I would like to know if any of you had something similar and recovered from it. If yes, what did you do? What resources could you recommend? Thanks a lot for reading and I'm ready to hear your story.
