Herniated Disc But Not Much Pain....+ Mri
1) I got an MRI on my pelvis for the back issues I've had for quite sometime... SO did I just toxify my body with EMF etc.... anything I should do?
2) Here are the results...
After going over your MRI, you have a herniated disc protrusion at L3-L4, and L4-L5. The internal disc derangement is most likely the cause of your pain because the herniations does not seem to be encroaching against nerves.
1. Do not bend forward for the first 1-2 hours upon waking up
2. Do not perform any exercises with bending forward
3. Continue to do core exercises (ie. Bridges, side bridges,)
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to shoot me an email
But during all this I have only had to not exercise 2 days otherwise the past 3 weeks I have been hitting 60 mile running weeks on top of jumping rope, plyometric DVDs like INSANITY, Tabatacise, Stairclimbing, Kettlebell Xtreme Cardio.... and lifting doing everything but squats with a barbell on my back....
Is it OK to do these things if there is no pain?
Do herniated discs heal?
Anyone have experience with this?
