My injury is in my lower back and it's difficult to explain so please bare with me.
I believe that I first slipped a disc on 7/21/06, I'm not sure because I didn't take it seriously for about a year and a half. I was doing heavy t-bar rows and over-training as usual when suddenly it was like I was shot in the back with a shotgun. The pain was unbearable and my strength was immediately gone and the worst thing was that I had to drive to the beach the next morning, it was excruciating. I called the doctor and got some anti inflammatory medicine and was told to go easy for a while which was easy since I was at the beach for a week.
The pain eventually went away and I started working out again on 8/9/06, I apparently had no problems because according to my journals I went right back to over-training. Fast forward to February of this year and after a year straight of hardcore leg training which I used to be proud of it became apparent that I had done some real damage to my back as it got increasingly worse until I finally did what I should have done to begin with and got it checked out. It should be noted that I was 8 solid weeks into my second cutting phase and I was spot on with food but still over-training. I finally took everyone's advice in my family and gym and toned down my workouts and went to the doctor who scheduled me an MRI and they said I had an old slipped disc injury L5-S1 protruding to the left with a little wearing of the disc. My doctor (who is frail) wanted to send me to a physical therapist (i didn't go) my chiro who is a bber said he could correct the disc problem and that I also had a weakend psoas. I now almost feel as if my disc problem is gone but my psoas still feels sore after any physical activity, but I really have no idea. Since I always felt the worst after leg day I have stopped doing legs altogether which was done in steps until I realized that I just needed to stop. I still appropriatly lift for upper body only and usually it's okay but I still have pain occasionally I try stretching, core strengthening, taking it easy on the weights, etc. and they have all helped decrease my problem maybe 60% but I still have an issue after 2 years what do I do?
