      I’ve been using this site for a few months now to try to reduce my lower back pain. Ive had it for a couple of years and was just diagnosed with a bulging disc that’s impacting a root nerve. I’m now waiting for an MRI and am wondering if I should continue working on mobility or wait a few more months for advice from my doctor. Are there any mobility excercisies that could help with this? Thanks

      Are you seeing improvements with the work you are completing?
      You can continue working on things and make adjustments as needed when you learn more from about the situation from the MRI and your doctor.

      Thanks. I am seeing some benefit/relief immediately after but things return to normal each morning.

      Continue with what you are doing, especially the things that you are finding helpful. You also need to look at your training and find things that you can do that you can progressively overload that don’t aggravate the situation. You have to figure out what you can do and work there as hard as you can and let your body reduce the sensitivity to the situation. Some of the big ones for this are any of the trunk work on the site, use as light a ball as you need, and making sure you get movement into the hips without aggravating your back. Thinks like deep goblet squats and sled work can be great here.
