I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this but here goes...
Since last September I've been having reoccurring lower back problems. They initially started with bad deadlifting form, around January my back finally felt good enough to the point where I could start lifting again on my squat and my dead lift. Since then I've been meticulous with my deadlifting form and have finally shed the mindset of trying to pull more weight then pulling the weight rightly.
In June I strained my back again deadlifting and since then its put a kabosh on any lower body movements. Finally last month I went to respected sports orthopedic surgeon in my area and he diagnosed me with a moderate back strain and some possible mild disk degeneration. I didn't get x-rays because of crappy insurance deductibles, but more importantly I feel very confident with the doc's diagnosis because of his experience..
I'm just curious as to what anyone who has had lower back strains has done to help alleviate the problem. Right now any form of weight lifting is out of the question because of this and other problems I have, so if anyone has some low impact exercises, stretches, or suggestions to help speed the healing process they would be greatly appreciated.
