I have gotten adjusted by my chiropractor a couple of times, it gives me relief but then the disc seems to come out of place again pretty quickly. I don't know if I am not giving it enough time to kind of set, or if there is another issue. I am going to see my rehab guy today so hopefully I will get some answers there.

I also started doing the McGill Big 3 to help strengthen my core, the recurrence of this issues makes me think that my core is not as stable as it should but so I am working on fixing that.

Any other suggestions JB?

As things are now, I am going to be pulling out from the June USPA meet. My back is getting better every day but I don't know where my strength will be because of it.

I want to continue to compete and improve, and I am still young now. This is more a decision about longevity than winning a meet. If I can't be at my best and healthy, there is no reason to risk it all because I am stubborn about it.

If that is the case, I will be switching gears to some offseason programming and focus on some weak points and continue to get stronger.

Thanks Mike, I am definitely shooting for August! I think the most frustrating part with all of this was that I can't pinpoint an event that actually caused the injury. In the past I always knew exactly what happened (aka what I did wrong) that led to the injury, and this time it just happened.

Oh well, a couple more days of rest (doing some cardio still) and then I'll be back in the gym. Going to work on the weak points and hopefully add a some strength while maintaining a constant bodyweight.

Took a much longer break than I expected to, but I think it has been the right decision. I am still going to keep my lower body work to more of a maintenance schedule until I get everything straightened out with my back. The adjustments weren't getting me there so I scheduled myself to go see an orthopedic next week, hopefully that will shed some more light on the issue.
