Well, luckily I stopped training a couple weeks ago. I think I fractured it on July 3, and I kept training for about two weeks before I got smart and stopped. But with this new knowledge, I'm glad I stopped before I did something really dumb and made things worse.

What sucks the most though is with the olympics on I get all fired up and inspired to go lift, and instead I have to sit on my butt wishing I was training.

Thanks again.

Well, as much as I enjoy the thought of needles, my doc thought prolo would be a bad idea for me right now since I already have alot of inflammation surrounding the L5-S1 joint.

Is there anything else I could do to reduce the hypermobility of that joint?

I'd suggest you do everything possible to get the inflammation down so that you can do prolo.

Contrast hydro can help. Low-intensity laser can help. Systemic enzymes. No nightshades. Other anti-inflammatory supplements and foods.

Looks like I have some reading up to do, and I'll up the fish oil some more. This is quickly becoming the most annoying injury I've ever had. Hopefully I can get prolo soon and get this fixed.

Thanks again for your help Garrett.

Popping- yeah happens all the time. Isn't really significant now though.

Cold showers & baths worked really really good. Anything hot always caused more pain
