Hi to all on this forum! I was very happy when I found this site, since it has a lot of valuable information for discus hernia.
I would extremely appreciate if anyone could give me an advice with the following. I am 28 years old and have discus hernia L5-S1 (protrusions on both sides - left and right). About two months ago I started going to a gym, but I avoid certain exercises, like squads, and all other exercices done in upright position. Paralell to this, I also do exercises for strengthening core muscles, as well as aerobic exercises (I drive a bicycle - MTB). What is your opinion, may I go to the gym with this problem?
Should I avoid doing dips? And do you know which exercices I should avoid for sure?
