    Training with bulged neck disc...

    Hey peeps

    I am rather new to 10th planet. I have been training in Melbourne under Frank Barca. I have been loving it...

    However at training last week I hurt my neck, after a CT scan I have been told that I bulged a disc and it is compressing the spine.

    The problem being I am still super keen to train and I want to be doing something rather than nothing. Is there anything you guys could recommend, should I still rock up to training each day but take it easy?

    I am super bummed out about it.

    Follow doctor’s orders, but keep watching videos and/or reading jiu jitsu books.

    Start PT immediately. Focus on building core strength/improving posture. I got an inflatable neck traction device and it's been very helpful in providing short term pain relief.

    Take this for what it's worth. I'm a PT who regularly sees people with neck pain/problems of all sorts. This kind of thing is very common and frequently has a favorable course no matter how severe the bulge. Even severe bulges and herniations have a favorable natural history. If you have a good doctor and a good rehab team behind you it helps a lot. Believe me they aren't all the same. It helps to have a good team of medical professionals who's aim is to get you back on the mat safely. It may take some time (sometimes a lot of time) but you'll be back. Again for what it's worth.

    I second the Mckenzie stretches. Some of the best exercises you can do for disc issues. A good chiro can clean it up and adjust your sacrum once the acute pain is gone.
