Back injury rehab

Post by akshungr8 »

Hi Guys,
Last year while I started to have problems in back. There were shooting pains in left hand and left leg.
I used to workout regularly and may have injured back in the process. I consulted a doctor and a physiotherapist and I was told to relax for a few months take some physiotherapy and then restart with slow weights. The diagnosis was Para-spinal muscle spasm.
Ever since then the left side of body feels weak. Even while walking i feel left leg is weak. It starts to pain as soon as a little stress level as reached. The pain begins form left hip to and radiates down the left side of leg down to the ankle. Also there is a little pain in upper back and left shoulder.
While standing and doing squats I feel foot position is unstable and i have to keep resetting the position every few seconds.
I need help regarding how can I ease the pain and regain strength in the affected areas.
Please advice !!

If you have any "hard core" gyms near you (gyms that powerlifters and serious athelets train in), you can look for a machine called the reverse hyper. Many serious lifters use this machine for back rehab.

See this video by the inventor of the reverse hyper" onclick=";return false;

See this article regarding the reverse hyper for rehab ... Hyper.aspx" onclick=";return false;

Chances are you will have a hard time finding a reverse hyper unless you know some serious lifters. In that case, I would purchase some light resistance rubber bands from

see here ... 95&pid=246" onclick=";return false;

Buy that band and practice doing high rep band good mornings

Demonstrated here with a much stronger band than I recommend for you rehab" onclick=";return false;

I would also try band pull throughs with the same pick band I have linked to" onclick=";return false;

As a powerlifter, I always need to prevent lower injury to the lower back. It's easier than you think. I work band pull throughs and band good mornings religiously. They can be excellent for both rehab and injury prevention.

Believe it or not I found walking to be a tremendous help for rehabbing a lower back. I discovered this by accidently about 10 years ago when I develped a herniated disc and a God awful case of sciatica. For me, going to the weight room was out of the question....the only thing I could manage to do was to walk for about 15 minutes. Quite frankly it was the only thing that made the pain go away..the pain meds didn't do a thing.

Lower back agony, how practice causes, you may have a craving for resting, yet moving is useful for your back, practices for lower back torment can fortify back, stomach and leg muscles, they help bolster your spine, alleviating back torment...

We know what we are, but know not what we may be
