Core work, yoga 3x a week (it really works, even if you just do it at home), sleep with a pillow between your knees
Don`t let a major back injury stop you from training bro.It`s imperative that you continue to train & impress the forum.
i have pretty severe arthritis in both hips (i know, i ain't my back). a stretching routine, core work and foam roller keep me pain free.
all 3 are free, and good to do anyway....give a shot
You need a bag
And some rice.

Cold Showers.... you can thank me after you've done it 10 days in a row. You'll never go back to hot, you'll never get sick, you're back pain will clear up and you'll feel like superman.
I just bought the "Fix My Back Pain" program from criticalbench.com for $20. Chiro/ART didnt help, PT with traction also no dice, even after cortisone injection.
I'm going to give this program a try for a month, hopefully see enough improvement to at least begin using weights again, but sciatica is so bad that avoiding flexion seems to almost totally rule out a return to BJJ unless back at 100%.
I think I'll take up boxing if I don't markedly improve.
You mean, "bitch-mints"..?
I wouldn't wish this shit on anyone.
have you tried chiropractors?
I suffer the same as most who've posted- got real curious at the mention of tramadol, I've been using it for a year now- and saw the link to Foundation Training.
