I might have to try your neck-knee-hang though a mild fear of chocking or wanting to start auto-erotic asphyxiation afterwards might hold me back for some time.

    I did jiu jitsu for the first time in a year today.

    Back seems to be holding up. The rest of me is pretty sore but 12 minutes of rolling actually loosened me up.

    I have two herniated disks, and the doc said it wasn't bad enough for surgery. I figured out my own pt regimen, which included dropping weights for a while and cobras and press ups, and some core work. A couple of years later I'm back lifting weights, but being very careful. If I feel any twinges or sciatica return I back off weights and institute more mobility work. So far so good. I hadn't heard the non-twisting advice yet, but I've only recently been doing any twisting. I guess I need to be careful with my torso twists...

    On the decompression, I've heard some friends who do it and swear by it. I don't have the money to try it.

    Decompression is not cheap, I think I spent about $1600 on it, I also bought a thick memory foam bed cover and I sleep better and i think that's helping a lot as well.
