Injury recovery supplementation.
Looking for effective supplementation for injuries.
I currently had a CT and my last 2 vertebrae are bulged. I'm currently waiting for an MRI.
Im looking into different training programs, and exercises to strengthen the surrounding muscles, but am also interested in any diet and/or supplement changes I'm able to make.
Off course, currently taking Fish Oil amongst some other basics.
Any guidance would be appreciated.

When I get flare ups or any new joint pains I get right on USPlabs Super Cissus. Within a week or two pain is usually gone. Can't say enough about the stuff.

He must mean L5-S1. SNS Cissus XT is a great dual-action analgesic + anti-inflammatory. However, nerve compression at the L5-S1 juncture is no joke (namely the sciatic nerve as mentioned above, but also the major motor nerves supplying the gluteal region). You should be very careful in drawing the line between training the surrounding muscles and further stressing the vertebral column.

No fun. I actually have an extra L vertebrae..."lumbarilization of the sacrum".
Cissus and fish oil are good bets for sure. Possibly some turmeric/curcumin, high dose pycnogenol, rosemary, and ginger extracts. My mom uses New Chapter's ZyflaMend which has all those ingredients and more and she gets a lot of relief from her sciatica and knee pain.
An inversion table...done carefully and perhaps with some assistance, is great at relieving the pressure on the disks if you can't afford PT.
As far as training...thats where a physical therapist can really help you. I'd look into core exercises..planking, etc before attempting any sort of lifts.

Agreed.. personally i wouldnt touch the surrounding muscles. Sns cissus and joint help imo would both be great for anti inflammatory purposes though.Originally Posted by mr.cooper69

Really? Im very careful at the gym. I wear a belt for alot of sets.Originally Posted by mr.cooper69
It actually hurts more at work, as i bend & twist more. Its worrying tho, I need more scans & to see the spine specialist. I also need to find a good physio & rehab pt! I considered giving up weights too

It that all I can do? Squats with a belt dont hurt my lower back tho.Originally Posted by mr.cooper69
My quads are 26", I dont want them bigger but i want to keep training my calves.
Would a rehab pt/physio go through this with me? Thanks for the info!

Look into low-bar, powerlifting style squat. You're on the right track with using a belt for support, but remember to train the entire core and focus on movements where you are standing (e.g. DB side bends, standing cable crunches, trunk rotations).

I had issues with squats even at 60kgs x 25 reps with no belt. If i wear the belt I feel no pain on a smith machine, i get up to 140kgs x 6 reps. I generally do 80kgs x 10 reps x 8-10 sets.Originally Posted by Rodja
I am worried tho, I need to build my core without affecting it too much. I cant train hamstrings well either, really hurts my lower back. :/
