The spine flexing under pressure is what causes ruptures. So if you strengthen your muscles and only lift correctly, technically you should never have another spine injury. (provided the muscles are warm when you lift the object) Even if you do injure yourself it would only be a muscle injury, which aren't as bad as damage to cartilage. (your discs)

For this I just did weight training with a trainer until I knew how to lift so I didn't hurt myself. I've had very few incidents since doing this. I get sore back every now and then, but nothing like it was. The added bonus is that my back is very strong now and I can lift things most people wouldn't even dare to try. But its been years now and I've been weight training almost the whole time.

Some injuries are so bad that surgery is needed, but I got lucky and just had to rehab my back.

Long response, but that's what worked for me.

I have an MRI for my back tomorrow, possible ruptured disk. Oh fun! thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Damn battleaxe consider yourself lucky. I have done physical therapy, chiropractic stuff, basically all the treatments and nothing has helped. So after 2 years they finally figured it was a disk. And no dr wants to cut up a 24 year old that bad. They would have to go from the front and lift my heart up and move both lungs aside. Other than that I have to live with it unless it gets to the point i can hardly walk, most times I can hardly feel my feet but I do the best I can.

Wow.... that's horrid. I was young too when I did it the first time. About 19 I think, on a trampoline in California (that felt good). Then again right before my wedding when I was 29 lifting a 10" tree that was about 20 feet long. My right foot slipped out from under me on a creek bank and I was on my back for almost a month. Horrible pain.

I guess I have been lucky though. Things have healed up well and I can dead-lift and squat well over 400lbs even now that I'm over 40, so I really can't complain. But I have to say if I didn't work out (carefully) I would probably be in pretty sad shape.

That's rough man.

Now I do feel really lucky.

That sounds bad. Mine was from lifting a jeep 4x4 trans connected to the transfercase. My specialist said that she has only seen a few with a mid back issue like this in her career. Usually its lower back that's most common and neck is next. Those two are most common remedied by minimaly invasive surgery or working out like you have described. But I love the autobody field. Have had my job at the shop for 8 years.

I slipped a disk in my back my freshman year of High school while high jumping. My butt hit the pole, and only half of it fell off. my back landed on the half that was still up :/ It still hurts randomly sometimes, and I was off my feet for 3 or 4 weeks right after it.

I'm a former/escaped IT support specialist, but these days I call myself a medical lab scientist and I commit wanton acts of SCIENCE in the name of patient care. I have an amazing job that would totally support my hobbies if it weren't for the crippling debt I ran up while in school, but that's been rapidly turning around. It's ALMOST TIME...

Anything and everything Healthcare IT/IS related from basic desktop troubleshooting to building/managing a full data center with 80+ physical/virtual servers etc. etc.... salary is average and sometimes I wish I worked with a bunch of people I didn't like so I would quit and get into the private sector making 4 times the $ I do now lol... gotta love working with people you like and can count on though thumb.gif No replacement for a job AND people you like cheers.gif
