My Brother's Spine


#1

I don't know how this cat is still walking with a spine so fucked up. I was just looking at his most recent X-Ray, and one of his discs is crushed completely and the ones in his chest are facing opposite directions.
He carries on his routine like nothing's wrong. I just seen him squat a 500 x 3 with no complaints

I'll try to scan the thing to show how messed up it is asap.

question though

is it possible to have such core strength that a jacked up spine takes a backseat? Anyone ever seen this?


#2

Are these weight training related injuries?


#3

My sisters leg.


#4

the initial injury was football related and had been corrected. We got the xray after his physical and were curious as to how he is pretty much pain free.


#5

The ones in his chest? What?

There are no discs in anyone's chest, so I'm assuming you mean his thoracic vertebrae....
