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.

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.

Besides of trying to get stronger neck muscles, it helped me to ride with a neck stabilizing collar. First year a thick one, next season a thiner one, actually designed from a horse riding outfitter but it was helpful for snowboarding too.
Out of the USG catalog:
It won't absorb all energy of a backwards fall but it would prevent fast/extreme reclining.



Although the neck is fine by now and I almost got the same ability to move it as before the accident, I'm riding rather defensive if groomers are crowded, exactly because of this. If I get enough safety distance, I ride fast and with fun again.
ah thanks for posting this. I felt a pinch in the middle of my back moving some stairs for my pool. Later that day when I was scraping paint off my barn, I felt stiff and pain. Normal thing for my neck once a year for some reason.

Well this time, the next morning I was in hell. So much pain and couldnt move. Breathing deeply hurt. Next day, same but it seemed to move to the rhombus muscles. Next, back to the middle of the back.
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.

Guess it's the same everywhere. Not only the quality of the physician but also his field of specialization will greatly influence his diagnosis. Had knee pain after jogging/riding bike. Went to a renowed specialist. After x-rays and measuring, he claimed that I have to get surgery or I wouldn't be able to climb stairs when I'm in my forties. Rather invasive one: cut the thighbone to change the rotation of the lower leg. Well, he was specialized in osteotomy... No thanks. Went for a second opinion and this one had more conservative therapy in mind, change the running style and I should avoid the most pain causing action, thus I skipped riding bike. Still doing lots of sports, but jogging with orthopedic soles, hiking with poles. That's ten years ago. No knee pain here.

Well, single examples never apply for the general, but still... if you get the diagnosis to do surgery, get a second opinion. Maybe there's a conservative way to help you.

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