I was wondering if I could get some good advice on my relatively ‘recent’ injury. I am 18 years of age and about 6 months back, I performed pretty heavy deadlifts which caused this wave of pain that rushed through my back and almost paralyzed me for the next 2 days.
Shorty after, I was diagnosed with L1/S1 disc sequestration. Today, 6 months later, my back isn’t really hurting much but the sciatic nerve still makes things quite uncomfortable on daily basis.
I’d like to get some advice from perhaps any physio/chrios around here or those of you with experience in regards to anything that could be done to increase recovery and whether full recovery is possible at all? (can the sciatica eventually decompress?).
Also, am I allowed to engage in cardio (HIIT on recumbent bike?) and weight lifting at all?
Any help would be tremendously appreciated.
