Hello I'm 17 years old and was recently diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and a bulging disc in my lower back. Well I went to the doctor because I'm very active in sports( football wrestling and track) and I am prone to playing though pain so when my back started hurting during wrestling season I just over looked it. Well 5 months later its still bugging me so I decided to go to the doctor. After a X-Ray and MRI they decided it wasn't a dress fracture but instead DDD and a bulging disc. The doctor said I could continue playing sports and it won't affect me later in life. And that's all he said. Iv found all info on DDD on the Internet. So I would like to find other athletes playing with DDD and could give me some tips. Thanks!
I also was sent to physical therapy( have not made it yet)
