    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    on the disabled list

    Has anyone else felt the joy of back injury? It's a hoot. I just found out that I have two herniated discs in my back and will be out of training until such time as they are not in danger of rupturing.

    So thanks to all for the MA / fitness advice. I will put it to use as soon as I am uncrippled.

    Yeah, I have a cervical disc. It's no fun. You just have to keep doing what you can. Depending on the extent of damage, the body will try and stabilize itself by laying down bone (arthritis). You have any thecal sac involvement?

    No, thank God. That's grisly when you have fluid all around in there and ugh. The herniation of the discs (mine are lumbar) causes some stingers in my legs and such, as the nerves are bumped. But no, no rupture no fluid.

    Well I hope you get back in action soon. I'm thankful to only have the neck problem. I'd figure my low back would be screwed though because I had some problems when I was a kid, and I got tossed backwards into a table once that was part of a beam that held up the ceiling. The table didn't move and I felt like a cartoon character bending backwards.

    I did it years ago doing yard work for my mom. Cutting down scrub trees and yanking out the stumps. I thought "lift with the legs" was an old wives tale ...

    I haven't been keeping up with my physical therapy and this is what happens. The erector spinae muscles get weaker and there's too much pressure on the bad discs. Woe is me.

    Stay tuned for my new training log: Tai Chi with the Elderly and Possibly Dead. Watch as Afronaut trades judo and MMA for push hands with the gang from Shakey Palms. Oooh and aaah as he pwns Edna Quigginbush in the day room, pre-Matlock throwdown.

    Holy **** that just remined me of the time when I pwned this poor old grandmother doing a technique drill without even trying, I thought I was going light. Poor thing fell down and went BOOM!

    No back injuries here, but I just got DLed too. Was rolling today and an armbar went too far... I didn't realize how much I use my elbows until every little thing I did caused me to scream in pain.
