Thanks everyone for making me feel better, once again!

I got fixed up this morning from David, my physiotherapist. He was pretty upset - not at me, at the injury. 2 Facet joints were out. Ugh. At any rate, he is going to call in a few favors and get me treated with an injection lickety split, as opposed to me waiting until April to see Dr Babbins - the sports medicine doc. He is also going to get the xray I had taken a few weeks ago and take a look. He said either my disc is compressing due to the arthritis and/or the tissue surrounding the joints is too soft and stretchy, thus allowing the joint to pop.

I have no idea if poor form last year caused this. I don't see poor form causing arthritis. I hope to find out. I thought my form of late has been good.

I really long for a day like I had in Vegas. There were no problems and no pain and I nailed form.

If my lower back is healthy my form is always pretty good, at least I think it is and nobody here has said anything in the last few months. The Crew has also not pointed out any glaring errors.

JB - I am all ears for any plan you may have. I used to do low bar, but Steve suggested I try high bar to help correct forward lean, so I did and it seemed to work. perhaps going back to low bar might work? If so, I'll certainly do it.
