Unfortunately after receiving all this awesome advice I was involved in a car wreck, I cracked my C7 in three spots docs told me i'll be outta commission for three months at least, does anyone have any therapy advice. I AM NOT going to let this injury stop me from achieving my goals, please help me out guys
Wow! I just saw this thread and read through it and got to your post you just did a few minutes ago. Glad you made it out of that alive , looks like you rolled the car and i see a child seat. Please tell me a child wasnt in there, and if so that they're ok! I assume so seeing this all just happened and you took time to post here
All I can recommend is that you take your time healing and make sure insurance pays for you to see a good phys. therapist. Look for one that specializes in athletic rehabilitation from injuries. I had to go through three to get one that got me in shape to lift and be athletically active again after my motorcycle accident that lead to a shoulder surgery and a scapula surgery. I also had compressed C6/7 vertabret that got sets of cortisone injections during pt. I had PT 3 times a week and listened and followed all I was told and now I'm lifting more then I did before thosr injuries. Take care and good luck,
I have to second what Mike says. Don't ask us hunkies how to rehab a serious injury. Talk to your doctor and have them hook you up with good physical therapy. I had a lower thoracic back injury and after I got reprogrammed a little bit, I came back even stronger.
Dang that was a turn of events! Glad you're ok and have a good prognosis. Take your time and heal bro, you have YEARS to train. Never underestimate the heart of a lifter.
Remember why you started.
Yeah the human body is pretty darn resilient, but you have to take care of it too. Find out what you can and can't do from the PT's etc. and hang in there and take time to heal.
Oh man this is horrible, sorry to hear this. But like everyone else is saying be patient and heal. Even if you lose a lot of your gains don't sweat it. They will come back really fast. Hope you have a fast and really positive recovery. Keep us updated, and maybe start a thread asking about a good therapist in your area. Nows the time to plan for the future, so you can get back to pushin iron fast.

Well it looks like I can lift again, praise The Lord and pass the ammunition, I've been cleared by both the doctor and physical therapist. Can't wait to start my new program I've been studying new lift and techniques, nutrition and supplements, thanks for the support and information, Happy Lifting!
Speedy recovery, man. Getting injured isn't fun.
Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.
