Now 10 days post-op and doing great. Walked 3 miles this morning. After reading about the Australian Method of Spinal Stabilization and seeing pmazz10's posts, I bought the book by Rick Jemmett. Color me sold.
It makes perfect sense. My problem is that no-one seems to have heard of it here in Raleigh, NC. How could something published in 2001 with so much success not be more widely used by 2008? There is no one with CHEK credentials and even the PTs at Duke haven't heard much about it.
I had a L5-S1 discectomy after a major herniation ... he had to take 40% of the disc out. I want to (1) do everything I can not to reherniate and (2) get back to normal fit, healthy life ... i.e. for me, weights.
I would love some advice on how I can get a PT to help me with something that seems so fundamental. I want to work TrA and multifidus before all these core exercises they are giving me.
Any help from pmazz10 or anyone else would be much appreciated.
