I suffered a back injury (compression fracture) back in January of this year. My car rolled over and I mildly fractured my L4 vertebrae. I wore a brace for 10 weeks and at 12 weeks my doc let me return to work (labor job). It has now been 10 months since the injury and I have been lifting for about a month, nothing to heavy, just light deadlifts, benches and front squats.
Anyone have any advise? Similar injuries? Is it safe to lift 10 months after a mild back injury? I'm not going to end up paralyzed? I should also state that after lifting for a month now that my back doesn't hurt all that bad anymore. I just don't want to really screw anything up.
