Deadlifting....Recently Pinched Nerve


#1

I have been apprehensive to deadlift for the last month or so because I had a pinched nerve in my L-5. I have gone through chiropractic treatment and have been doing light lower back work. What is an appropriate time frame to begin light deadifting?

Right forum?


#2

How old are you? What did your chiro say? Why are you deadlifting? yeah, yeah, it's a great exercise but make sure you balance the risk/reward.

More info if you would.
