    Hi,my 10 cents here:
    Ten years ago I had a slipped disk L4-L5, with 95% blocking of the area of the nerve. I learned that from MRI done after months of pain that no therapy could fix (avid pilates and yoga at that time). Disectomy arthroscopic surgery fixed it 100%: I did my google homework (extensive), read about the article that says: when you follow 2 group of cases of slipped disks cases for 10 years, one with surgery and another without, they end up cured after 10 years.
    Yes but this is the question:

    HOW DID YOU SPEND THOSE 10 YEARS IF YOU DID NOT HAVE THE SURGERY?

    I chose the surgery. It was magic,like turning the pain switch off. I have a strong and flexible back now.
    And now that my workouts are primal, with lots of movement, my range of motion is much better, better than most (I would say all) the thirty years old that train in the gym (I turned 60 this year)

    If the protruding disk is not that bad (as it was my case) you can fix it with exercise (the right ones):BUY THIS BOOK:"8 steps for a pain free back". It changed my life

            Interesting that you say this, because I just got a rumble roller last week. While it does feel great on the tight muscles in my mid and lower back, it has really aggravated my lower back. I have a flare of pain in my iliosacral joint that is really bothering me now too. I am planning to return it. Did you have any issues with that?
            Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

              I have a straight foam roller. But I never roll my lumbar area. I do my thoracic spine and glutes, but I don't roll across the lumbar region. I've heard that the lumbar spine is built for stability, not flexibility, so it makes sense to me not to roll over it.

                Some time due to extra exercise there be a back pain. We should maintain a balance between our exercise. We can also use any back pain remover machine that is very helpful because they helps in muscles exercise.

                  Find a good Chiropractor. They can help with alignment and mobility, then set you up with a proper strengthening program.

                  My long story short. Herniated disc at L5/S1 about 15 years ago. Tried PT and other things and eventually the ortho wanted to schedule a laminectomy surgery. Went to a Chiropractor instead. Couple of months of treatment and no more pain radiating to the leg, or in the back. Even able to compete as collegiate wrestler. 15-20 years later now I still go in for a tune up once in a while to help keep healthy. Still doing some heavy lifting and strengthening too. One relapse a couple years ago, but only took 2 weeks of intensive chiro treatment to get under control this time....I figure its due to my continued work on mobility and periodic visits as prevention.

                    I've been down this road, almost 14 years ago. L5-S1 herniation followed by multiple rounds of PT, 3 epidurals, numerous chiropractic visits, nerve damage in leg, a few episodes of passing out due to the pain, finally led to a microdiscectomy after six years of battling it (docs thought I was too young to operate on). Would I do it again? Knowing what I know now? Maybe, maybe not. I think I'm one of the more fortunate ones in that I haven't needed another surgery. The stats say that only 50% are successful. It took me 4 months to return to work after surgery. I started to change my life a year after with diet and exercise and I hardly ever have back pain now, but still have a spot that is extremely painful and can't be touched where the scar is.

                    All that background to say I get it, I've been there. The most important question is, what caused it? No doc gave me that answer. I'm currently doing studies in Neurosomatic therapy and have taken multiple courses in resistance stretching. More than likely it's caused by a postural imbalance and is you bodies way of dealing with the problem and trying to protect itself. Could be, like I found in my case, stronger dominant side muscularly in the hip, tighter fascially in the opposite side, which caused the disc to protrude. After surgery and PT, nobody ever told me really how to fix the issue and prevent it from happening again. They said, "never bend over at the waist again to pick anything up." That was it. I'm still learning and working through some issues that probably caused the problem to bein with. Getting to the root of the cause is hard because not many people do that kind of work.

                    My husband treated a lady with 4 bulging discs and got her out of pain and kept her from surgery, all from stretching and doing fascial work. A lot of it was in her arm. Anatomy trains is a great resource to trace fascial lines.

                    Anyway, if you have any questions, let me know. Best of luck!

                        In what position do you sleep?

                        I had the same problem -- young, active, healthy, but lower back pain.

                        My problem was that I slept on my stomach every night (always had). Once I got out of that habit, the lower back pain was gone.

                          Check out the book Healing Back Pain by Dr. John Sarno. It did wonders for me.
