Lumber spine problems
by Christopher Tuck
(Main Beach, Qld, Australia)
Sarah, I have been following the exercises in your book since about 2005. I do exercises at night (back block,rocking, rolling,reverse curls)and in the morning (rocking rolling) followed by a 5km walk and squats (2). I have just had a CT scan because I suffered from sciatica recently and a weakness in the spine at about L2/3. The weakness is the problem I wish to discuss and get a way forward.
The weakness came resulted after lifting a printer. It was not the lifting of printer which is quite light but the subsequent two chin lifts of the printer I did foolishly as I held it at stomach height. I was upright and on the second chin lift I felt a mild ache and a sense of weakness around the area of L234? For the next few days I had a sensitive (not a sharp pain) in that area. Also the recent CT Scan indicated I had worn facets joints and also bulging of disc in this area.
What exercises can I do to strengthen the muscles it this area to prevent this from happening . By the way I regularly need to lie on the bed flat on my back for 30 secs and then flip onto my stomach'push up with my arms to unjam the back (There is a sudden thud in my spine which can be quite alarming but not painful.
