I had a herniated L5-S1 this past November, missed half a season because of it. A lot of PT is what basically got me back on my feet. Snowklinger suggested acupuncture (thank you, man!) and it helped control pain and stiffness. My PT taught me stretching and strengthening exercises and taping the joint.
