I just got an MDI done for my lower back pain and weakness which worsened greatly about 6 weeks ago. It has not been read yet professionally, but it looks to me like I have DDD. This is based on the images I have seen on line and reading about the sympstom on this web site. I may be premature in this, but wil find out this week for sure.
My question is if I will ever be able to be play racquetball again with DDD. I believe playing has contributed to my condition, but was able to play and then rest when my back flared up. Now I have been down for 6 weeks and am questioning if I will ever be able to play again. I did not see anything on line about returning to these type of activities.
