So after layin' off the squats for 6 months and seeing ZERO improvement in my back, I decided to go back to doing them.

The last 2 weeks I have been in no more pain than usual, and in fact some days are much better than before. I think it's a combination of the physical therapy and the squats... I think strengthening my glutes and hammies is helping.

I love #5 on that chart, feels GOOOOOOOD. And bridges, always a good tool for the tool box.

Glad to hear you can squat again, time to bring the pain....in the legs that is...no back!

I've been having back problems for about a year now. I slipped a disc in my back, which seemingly orgininated because my hips are out of alignment by 1/2 inch. My left leg is longer than my right. I was adjusted and it felt amazing, but in my typical fashion I got back into it too soon and threw it back out of whack. It was explained to me that this has now become where my body is comfortable and I need to take it easy for a few weeks....making another appointment soon. Thought I'd share my experience, I'm sure you've looked into it, though.

Thanks for posting the PT stuff. My core has gotten weak from my back injury and I need to work on building it up.

Unfortunately it's not a disc problem because those can heal (calrification: slipped discs can heal; torn discs cannot heal). My problem is inflammation/arthritis in my sacroiliac joint. My PT claims that with better strength and flexibility of the joint and the surrounding muscles, I should see a reduction in pain. I am hoping this is the case, because I've tried everything from chiropractor to cortisone shots.

The PT I am seeing right now is actually a local legend because he testifies in court cases against chiropractors lol. Kind of funny, given that I was seeing a chiropractor once a week for about a year.

Gotcha..I don't care who I see, as long as they fix it. I've never been a fan of chiropractors, but I'm open to try anything at this point.

Did you see the chiro for your back? I'm really really really leary of them, but I am at a point where something needs to be done. It's not going away and the original injury was about a year ago...

Hey fellow back injury people.

Thought I'd join in since I have had issues with my back in the past.

I think my injury is 100% now. I basically stopped deadlifting heavy; have not squated too heavy in a while either. And I have zero issues with any other exercises. Whearas before it was so bad, it hurt just to bend down and pick up objects!

I just don't think my back or discs are meant to lift over 500 lbs off the ground. :-( While its a great way to grow, it just is not worth the cost of injury to me, so I will focus on other ways to get big.

Anyway, sorry to hear your guys injuries are still hurting. Hope your docs can improve the situation.

That's great news!! I can't wait to say I'm 100%. Ummm, I'm not deadlifting over 500lbs, so that won't be an issue for me, lol! The most I've ever done is 225#, which I suppose is relative to my build and me being a female. I definitely do not think I could even touch that weight right now, but someday again I will. Did you stop deadlifting and squatting completely, or just heavy? At the stage I'm in, air squats at a high rep scheme really make my back angry. I have been doing some 5x5's and those are going pretty good, but I stop at 95#.
