I've been dealing with chronic low back pain since my back went out 7 months ago. MRI showed mild bulges in the L3/4 and L4/5 and a small annular tear in L4/5. Began PT a couple of weeks ago. Pain is dull and chronic and seems to have plateau'd over the past 4 months. Flares up when sitting. I've been doing a lot of core strengthening exercises but the back still feels very weak. Swinging a golf club is out of the question at this point.
After 7 months I'm clearly concerned about how/if/when I'm going to get back on the course (especially with the nice weather finally here in the NE). I'm curious as to what has worked for some of you.
