I tore my muscle at the job I had while moving a 225lbs steel box. The first docter gave me meds and two weeks off needless to say when I went back they gave me an even heavier box to move. Then the pain increased severly and I had to see a specailist, according to her my muscle didn't heal properly everytime its used it puts a unusual amount of pressure on my spine and discs. Along with that I have some internal disc displacement and she couldn't finish the testing to find out which. The surgery would've been to fix the discs along with remove some muscle so that it wouldn't put so much pressure on my spine.
Everytime I lift or overwork myself I get severe spasms and the feeling of a dagger in three spots on my back."
So how should I start up any ideas?
the first thing is figure out which exercises are off limits, and then build from whats left. whats your goals, feel free to pm me anytime for help
