A while ago I hurt my back. I was lifting at the gym and felt something go in my back. I went to the chiropractor and got back on my feet, but never getting back to 100%. About a month ago I had an MRI done on my back and found out I have a protrusion, or herniated disc of my very last disc in my back (the one that sits between the last vertebrae and your tail bone), which is one step below a ruptured disc.
So what happens if I rupture it? Well, there are a number of things they can do, which are all bad and all involve surgery on my back. For now the doctor told me to avoid lifting heavy objects and high impact exercise.
In other news, I’m heading to Whistler snowboarding this weekend. Hopefully, I won’t be heading home on a stretcher.
