    Herniated discs

    After a few years in the military and probably bad lifting form. I have 3 herniated bulging discs in my back. I'm just shy of thirty. What do I do to recover fast? What can I take? What exercises do you recommend and don't recommend?

    Try a epidural and the chiropractor.

    They are pretty common back injuries. Some people don't experience pain from them at all. I'm not so fortunate.

    I wholeheartedly suggest checking out the book Back Mechanic by Dr. Stuart McGill

    He is one of the world's top spine biomechanists. He has performed a ton of research on the causal mechanisms of disc herniations, and how to recover from them. The book would be able to answer all the questions you asked. I am in no way affiliated with him, but I have read a lot of his research, and he is respected as a top rehab expert by most rehab clinicians.

    I herniated my S1/L5 disc and tried all alternative therapies but eventually had surgery. My only regret is that I spent so much time in pain when I could have had the surgery years earlier.

    I've never had one; but I have a very good friend who has and he says the exact same thing. After surgery; it was immediate relief!

    I think I have the same problem, but I haven't checked. How long does it take to recover after the surgery? When can you expect to go back to the gym?
