Hello every one! New to the site and forums. So i'll give a brief description on my condition and then ask my question.
My names Mike, I'm 30 years old and in good health. June18th, 2014 I was in a MVA with a tractor trailer causing a fractured ulna, tibia and my worst injury, C-2 dens fracture.
I has been 18 months into my recovery. I have been performing my own exercises as I couldn't go to out patient PT because of no insurance. I have full range of motion of my neck. ( I lost 50% ROM with turning ). I had my last follow up apt. with my neurologist and he lifted al restrictions on me. I have been working my way back to going to the gym to slowly build up strength. I was in the best shape of my life prior to the accident. I kept it quite simple at the gym on my first day back last week. I stuck to circuit training. ( Machines only ).
Ok, so heres my question, that my neurologist didn't give me a straight answer to. If anyone here has similar injuries here as mine, please share with me the things you avoid or try to avoid with your pre-existing injury. I know everyones injuries and limitations are different. I'm more or less here seeking opinions. Especially exercise related.
I will be seeing a doctor in Occupational Medicine to tell me more specifically what restrictions I may have. I don't understand why he didn't tell me in the first place. He is a neurosurgeon... haha.
