A large l5s1 herniation has left me with lots of back pain when I bend backwards and try to do any extension exercising- which I am very confused about because everywhere I read says that's supposed to help it.
My herniation has left me with some scoliosis on my lower/mid back. Is this common? When I bend backwards and forwards my mid back hurts so much like it's severely bruised And literally can't bend forward and feels like if I force it something will pop out. Has this been experienced by anyone else? Is it normal to result from a herniation. Getting so concerned and I don't see the surgeon for 2 months
