    I have been following your blog for some time now and I really learn allot from it. I know that you herniated three discs but by the looks of thing have managed to recover or manage them quite well. I herniated my l5 last year and am having a flare up right now after six months of smooth going. I am working with a PT I trust and have things moving in the right direction. But I was wondering what your journey was like rehabilitating and dealing with lower back pain.

    In your post about your injury you stated that you are always in a degree of pain. I am now coming to realize that I will also have to deal with a level of discomfort. I was wondering how you manage your pain and not let it manage you

      Hey Tristan. It’s a mental battle, but the level of discomfort is typically pretty low unless I do something stupid. By working on mobility and specific strength exercises that work for me it seems to keep things together.
