A good physio, stretching routine and then slowly but surely build your strength back up with deadlifts and kettle bells. You will have to start ultralight, but it works.

I found chiro, 'adjustments' and acupuncture to have no affect. Phone Post 3.0

Rest bro. Oh, and Vicodin, flexeril and naproxen. That's what helped me out anyway. Some good limited stretching as well. Phone Post 3.0

A lot of people here seem to have similar issues

savage animal - Been 3 months for me.

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. Phone Post 3.0
The rotation in boxing messes my back up.
Going in to do some drilling Thursday for the first time in almost 2 years.

Just be careful. I couldn't work for a year after trying to tough it out Phone Post 3.0

Damn! Thanks for the word of warning. Drilling striking? Grappling? Both? What are you going back to? Good luck and thanks for posting those links.

I'm 1 day into a 30 Day Stability Ball workout program, doing the pre and post workout exercises from the new Fix My Back Pain Now program I got from exercisesforinjuries.com, another thing I'm throwing at the wall for a month and seeing if it sticks.

Have bulging discs in neck. Trained on it for over 4 years. Had arm pain, neck pain, muscle loss in arm, tingling and shooting pains. Pretty bad neurological stuff. Had to strop training for 1.5 years.

Recently had surgery to decompress neck and clean out things impinging my nerve.

Competely symptom free now. Most likely may not be able to return to BJJ but I got a pain free life back. Modern medicine and surgical techniques are amazing.

If you have had an MRI and there are real mechanical and neurological problems, and symptoms don't go away for a while, it is worth considering.

I had tried absolutely every alternative up to this point. Wasted a LOT of time, money, and mental energy. Wish I had seen a good surgeon sooner. Phone Post

Disc compression issues can only be fixed by one thing... decompression.

Get yourself an inversion table. They are freakin awesome!

Headstands etc doesnt do anything, you have to hang. How does doing a headstand decompress your spine??? its the exact same thing as just standing on your feet man! LOL

</blockquote><br /> How many level fusion did you have?

Didn't have fusion, had a laminoplasty from C2-C7 (basically my entire neck was decompressed starting from the base of my skull). Also had a foraminotomy to clear bone spurs around the nerves going down my left arm at C5-C6 and C6-C7

It is a motion preserving procedure. 3 weeks out I basically have 90% range of motion back with the 10% not able to do due to muscle stiffness and soreness. Should have 100% once I start physical therapy in 3 weeks.

Incorrect.

Try those asanas out and tell me you don't feel the difference. Phone Post 3.0
