BTW: sorry, I made a mistake. It was C4/C6 not L4/L6 discs that were herniated...

Whats cool is Advil is actually working! Ive NEVER had advil actually work for me, ever.
So with that said, Ive never had a strain or injury that lasted more than a few days other than my knee which I tore something and am too chicken to go find out what it is, and def DO NOT want surgery.
The United States is full of doctors that dont know what they are doing but have great credentials. Infections are seemingly more commonplace than successes in my area, even though we have some of the best ratings for certain types of treatments, the others suffer. We get all the C and D students from med school here, as its not a major major city.
Anyway - hopefully my neck heals up. I assume it will but thats what I thought about my knee. I tore my knee because I turned in a ditch but my leg didnt , with about 100 pounds of rocks in my hands in a bucket.
Riding on the knee isnt so bad. Actually, the other knee has been causing me more fatigue. My back, aka skate leg.

Strech. Water. Spot your Landings.
I have had two discoptamies for 2 herneated discs- Shit sucks. But just be smart and stay on your excersizes.

|Krato||twist that shit out man. I always start with by taking a lax run to get that core warm then and twisting those arms standing up and bending over and get that lumbar mobile again at the base. reinjuries with these always happen when your spine is tight and enflamed.|

I would look for a functional movement screen trainer.
If you're still getting hurt it means you're missing an imbalance somewhere.
And i mean hurt, not sore.

Inversion table helps me to release the pressure of bulging disks. I very much try to avoid flat landings in the park. This kills me!!! Some of our features aren't built well and shoot you off the end to a flat, no landing ramp what so ever.
Between these two things it has helped me greatly

Discs heal... that's what they do. It just takes some time to re-train proprioception and let them resorb.
4 years is plenty of time.
If you've been doign proper workouts and stuff you might not even notice you even had a herniation on MRI.

Usually towards the end of the day I'm forced to stretch and take an ibuprofen. (they offered me opiates but no thanks)
I broke my helmet this year as well on some thick ice. Im sure if I had this my neck wouldn't of hurt for a month like it did.
Also that's one of the primary reason's I don't hit park anymore. I cant afford the big falls anymore.

|Noreaster||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.|
