About 6 months ago I had a lifting accident which left me with a bulging disk. I’m (very) slowly beginning to lift again but the right side of my lower back is very tense. I have the same feeling in the right side of my buttocks and right leg. Is that normal?
I frequently go to a chiropractor who ‘loosens’ things up, but after a couple of days it’s the same old story again. I stretch every day but it doesn’t seem to help …
Could foam rolling be an option to consider? Is that advisable with my condition? And is that possible for the lower back? I asked my chiro and almost everyone in my gym, but nobody knows what a foam roller is … (I’m from Europe, maybe it’s not common here?)
A very big thanks in advance and every reply will be very appreciated:)
