Hello, I came here to find out what I should do for my l5S1 Hernia, and also my L3-L4 Disk bulges. Some background information:
I am at a young age of 15 and have been weightlifting for 2 years. The incident occured during a weight heavier then i could handle that i used for squatting. I got an MRI yesterday which said that i have l5-s1 hernia and l3,l4 disk bulges. also stenosis? Now compared to other pain symtoms for people on these forums, i only have a radiating pain in my buttocks, and no numbness/sleeping problems. since i have been stretching, the pain has gotten better, almost down to none.So my question is this: is this a chronic problem to be worried about down the road? i am currently seeing a physiotherapist doing ITT therapy and so far i've been lifting and avodigin my lowerback. Yesterday i tried squatting with a lowerweight and strict form and i have no pain thusfar. any advice is appreciated, thanks!
