It was awful. It was December 29, 2017, coming back from vacation in FL. We got in early and being a dork, I did a twist and lift with my 45 lb luggage in the back of the SUV to head home. We go home. And something felt off. I stretched. Did some lower back stretching and ended up taking a nap for almost 3 hours (it was early flight).
I got up. FOOOOKKK. My back is jacked. Something isn’t right.
Long story short, as I have shared this story a lot on my social media, I have three bulging discs and dealing with degenerative disc disease.
WTF? I am 47 years old, had an EPIC year in 2017 and now I wasn’t able to freaking walk or flip turn in the pool because I pissed off the disc.
Well, you know me, instead of bitching and complaining about it. I did something about it. I learned everything I could about bulging disc, went to Stratton Sport & Spine, 3x’s a week and have to maintain my back exercises since this all started.
Today, I wanted to chat with you all about lower back pain, the muscles involved, why things happen the way they do, and some exercises that I have done with Stratton Sport and Spine!
