Working through back Pain
Wednesday, December 05, 2012
So I pulled something in my lower back (I mean like top of the butt lower back pain) and spent yesterday flat on my back in spasms. (upshot: I finally had time to check out Angry Birds Star Wars edition on my Ipod)
Thankfully it was not a scheduled cardio day so white I feel overly upset that I did not move much, I really don't feel like it is a total setback yet.
Today it is still sore but not killing me. I would like to keep it that way.
Today IS a scheduled cardio day.
Does anyone have any recommendations for cardio I can do that is low risk? I would really like to burn some calories tonight.
I am already stuck at a plateau I rally don’t want to start loosing ground by missing days I do not have to.
A little more information about my back pain if it helps with suggestions:
I have suffered from Sciatica for over a year now. It is better now that I have lost some weight but not gone.
According to the x-rays my lowest vertebra is slightly misaligned and I suspect I hurt it when I tripped or something. I am clumsy and sometimes it doesn't take much.
Yesterday the very lower part of my back was in hardcore spasm mode.
Today it just feels sore and kind of “hot” (this makes me think I did hit the nerve again)
Bending still hurts a lot but as long as I am standing or sitting with a support I barely hurt at all.
