My story with my low back injury is long, frustrating, and boring so I'll try to keep it brief.
Originally hurt myself about 2 years ago doing heavy deadlifts, early in the morning, with poor warm-up.... yeah stupid....
Since then it's been a never ending battle of re-injury and constantly having to think about my back with everything I do. I've seen traditional Chiropractors, a Chiro that uses the Koren and NUCCA techniques, PT's, an Acupuncturist, a Sports Massage therapist, and a Sports Medicine doc who works with a Pro Football team and uses the Active Release Technique (ART).
The Chiro who does the Koren and NUCCA is my "normal" guy, I go see him about once a month, unless I hurt myself. normally my second stop is my Acupuncturist, and finally the Sports Medicine doc who uses ART. The ART is probably what I see the biggest immediate difference with and I would love to go more but he's somewhat far away and isn't cheep to go see.
With all that being said, my main question for this discussion is "How can I fix my back? Like REALLY fix my back? Permanently."
So many people have low back/SI joint issues, I know of at least 3 others at my gym with something similar. It's such a huge problem in our society now-a-days and no one seems to have a start to finish "here's the plan" or even "here are the possible plans."
I roll out, stretch, mobilize multiple times a day. I get made fun of at my gym because I'm the guy who always mobilizing before and after the wod. I have a desk job but have a standing/sitting desk, and I try to move around as much as possible during the day (even got caught a few times rolling around on a lacrosse ball in my office). I'm not saying I'm doing everything right and I'm probably getting a lot wrong. I try to look at it like an experiment, like I'm trying to figure out what works and what doesn't but can never seem to find the right answer.
Any help or idea's are appreciated. I'd love to be able to pass my knowledge to others with this issue and help people to find their way back to a healthy back.
